Local governments spend most in lobbying
Look for simple solutions
Nice to hear that Algona has spent $18,000 so far on a lobbyist in order to secure $125,000 from the state for the design of a new community center. [“Biggest lobbyists: not who you may think,” page one, June 19.]
Apparently, Algona wants a stable location for its annual holiday social, Easter egg hunt and Halloween party. Seems like a simple barn would suffice. That would obviously be the most stable choice, and it wouldn’t require any horsing around.
