They never get it

We love a good story of the insiders that just do not get it. The Prince George’s County Council is spending $10,000 to $15,000 for a two-night retreat on the Eastern Shore this week. This would not be a big deal except for the fact the chairwoman of the County Council has no idea about spending tax payer money. The Prince George’s County Council decided to spend this money on this year’s retreat, even as the county faces a $77 million shortfall next fiscal year. If that was not enough they have a reason of course if it made these pages it is off the wall. They need to spend this amount of money to be able to focus and help council members avoid distractions. The diggs are top notch as council’s two-night retreat in Upper Marlboro offices at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa & Marina in Cambridge. They are claiming that it is also needed because they have five new council members that are starting the beginning of a four-year term. If you need a cherry on top asked if the members would pay their own way the chairwomen thought few members would still want to stay at the resort in that case. Is it not funny how when it is on their own dime it is not so attractive.
