Training unnecessary

-A A +A

Our Citrus County Board of County Commissioners, the ones who have been pleading poor-mouth for weeks, are sending Administrator Brad Thorpe to New Orleans for training on seaports at a cost to taxpayers of $4,267.52. (Citrus County Chronicle, Thursday, Dec. 13, 2012.)

Given Thorpe’s salary, and given the fact that Citrus County does not yet (if ever) have a port, I suggest the commissioners instead give Thorpe a one-way ticket to Afghanistan, which also does not have a port.
