Council Staff Accounts Get Districts' Funds

May 11, 2003

As a constituent who voted for Councilman Jack Weiss, I read in wonder your mention of him in "Clear Away the Slush Funds" (editorial, May 7) as the one council member proposing reforms. Your May 6 news story "40% of Pet Project Funds Going to Salary Accounts" depicted him as the council member with the highest level of funds transferred to salary accounts. I would rather have read that he currently had available a report on funds he spent for my community.

Unlike Weiss, I see daily "appropriate uses" and feel an "overwhelming demand" for funds in my community. Is he my community's representative or a middleman keeping money from my community for his own incumbent advantage? His actions, not his proposals, are going to answer this question.
