Last year Tari Renner, Scott Black, Steve Rasmussen, and Diana Hauman got the free trip to DC for One Voice. Participants are normally elected officials or the City Manager/Assistant.
This year Tari took his good buddy Justin Boyd. It looks like he replaced Amelia Buragas. Justin is the guy who posted the pic of the downtown BAGGED trash and complained about the City not picking it up. https://blnnews.com/2019/03/13/really/
Boyd was also Tari’s campaign manager and, of course, committee appointee.
Keep in mind, the City already paid $1600 x 4 to the EDC for this junket: $6,400.00
That $1600 each didn’t include transportation. Those charges are on Bills and Payroll for Monday night: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=21378
Almost $9000 total!
Don’t even ask why Boyd was more expensive. I wonder if he’s still there since a return trip isn’t listed. Somehow he did fly twice on the same day though.
The City employees must have had another private party – Chili Cook-off. Mathy will be heading to Denver so he can get ideas for how to usurp the private sector with taxpayer money.
Anybody else notice Tari quit charging taxpayers for lunch when his P-Card got yanked?
