But, I didn’t vote for Langford!

Posted by ALmod on November 9, 2007

So can someone tell me why Larry Langford reasons that all taxpaying citizens of Jefferson County and the State of Alabama should have to pay for his “visions”?  I take it that the U.S. Congress and President Bush were too busy for a meeting with the mayor-elect.  Otherwise he’d have been at their doorstep with his tin cup as well.  Larry, learn how to work a budget.  Then again, he’s likely too busy giving the guy who mows the lawn and barely has a high school education (if that) a six-figure salary so that he can oversee an even bigger budget and negotiate public services with corporations when he has little (if any) experience doing either.  Larry’s plan seems to be to have everyone but the people who live in Birmingham pay to improve Birmingham.  I predict a raise in the occupational and sales tax very soon.  (Of course, seeing as how those who work and shop in Birmingham also use the roads, using that to pay for the roads is understandable, but I heavily suspect he’ll use that money to fund his other pet projects.)
