Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

Has it occurred to anyone else there doesn’t seem to be a paper trail addressing the Victoria airport commissioners concerns about $2.6 million in Hurricane Harvey related insurance money? Every grant, every insurance transaction, every action the elected and appointed officials make when spending for tax payer financed projects, should be available for public scrutiny.

Too often questions that concern publicly financed expenses are not properly documented. Work programs are not specifically laid out. Reports are not written and filed with local jurisdictions for public scrutiny.

That failure to leave a written report containing all the requisite material including expenses, allows the folks in charge to finger point and deny any responsibility for work contracted. This might be a good time for the public to demand to know what rules exist in the state statutes laying out the proper procedure for spending taxpayer money.

Process, documentation and producing reports for public scrutiny; let’s leave the finger-pointing to the amateurs.

Polly Hearn, Palacios
