I scribbled yesterday how Center Township Trustee Carl Drummer is leaving, but some how I’m thinking the wrong Trustee is stepping down.
I found out yesterday that Wayne Township Trustee David “King” Baird has had some “interesting” expenditures as of late. For example…
- The Trustee’s office spent $10,000 at a west side “weight loss and motivation clinic.”
- The Trustee also spent $750 a month advertising poor relief services in a west side newspaper. Don’t you think that $750 would have been better spent on poor relief?
- The Trustee also spent $100,000 on “accounting services.” That number was $12,000 under the previous Trustee.
The sad part is Wayne Township is about to be dealt some major financial blows. The new airport entrance is now in Hendricks County, taking cash off the tax rolls. The number of foreclosed homes and declining home values will soon hit the property tax coffers. And not to mention the property tax caps. But someone thought spending $10,000 at a weight-loss clinic was a good idea. Maybe it’s time the “King” of Wayne Township was overthrown.
