To the Editor,
I must applaud Weirton Councilman Dalrymple for voting against giving the BDC $25,000 from our city funds.
He states the fact that we have yet to see the fruition of the funds given to the BDC to date. He mentions 10 years. Wow have we been giving them public funding that long?
A little investigative reporting would be great in this arena too. What kind of return are we getting for our tax dollars invested locally, from any of the government or government-funded agencies that are spending our tax dollars to invest in property? Granted these things take time, but is it the best use for our taxes, and how long do we continue funding them?
I would like to see more politicians, locally and nationally, think about these things a little more and demand results from public monies given away.
