Tax dollars for MARKETING Counties and Municipalities!!!!
Rep. Don Marostica (R), a land developer, is sponsoring House Bill (HB) 1015. This bill would authorize the governing bodies of counties and municipalities to appropriate moneys for the purpose of MARKETING their county or municipality!!!
As marketing counties and municipalities is not a proper role for government, one can only surmise that this bill is designed to funnel tax dollars to favored marketing and advertising firms -- thus promoting cronyism. Perhaps Rep. Marostica would like for those counties and municipalities where he engages in land development to perform some marketing. This bill presents an obvious conflict of interest.
You can view HB 1015 on-line at:
ACTION: The Local Government Committee will be reviewing this bill (and hearing testimony) on Tuesday afternoon (Jan. 15) at 1:30pm at the State Capitol in Room 0111. Please contact the Representatives on this committee and urge them to preserve the integrity of our State legislature and local governments through OPPOSING HB 1015!
