County Council members will collect cash, set up office funds

New legislation is for slush funds

If I had not read it with my own eyes, I would not have believed it. [“County Council members will collect cash for expenses,” page one, June 27.]

Officials will be able to set up a fund to pay for travel, parking and “other things related to their jobs.”

This is legal? I don’t believe I have heard of a more perfectly described “slush” fund. Amazing.
