In response to the shenanigans of our Lakewood city officials (Southeast / Long Beach sections, May 17):
These people were elected for the job they run like hell to get. I don't remember any time seeing the spouses of these people on the ballot. Just what is it they do on these trips, that the taxpayers of Lakewood should pay for?
Mrs. Rynerson says her husband goes with her and we, the people, pay for his meals and lodging. Why doesn't he stay home?
Mr. Van Nostran says he works a 40-hour week plus looking after his own business. Doesn't he think everyone else works 40 hours?
