To the editor:
First of all, thanks for naming a few names, it helps connect the dots.
For example Fred Paris, ex-mayor, is on tap to receive $245,000, the largest grant in your list (“Weather, other factors stall progress,” April 1). I’m not sure, but wasn’t the Franklin Development Commission established under his administration and didn’t he have a say in who was appointed to this commission?
And by the way, just what are these unelected commission members paid to subjectively allot tax dollars to private property owners?
