UNION MEMBER$ ENJOYED FEA$T AND FE$TIVITIE$ AT TAXPAYER’$ EXPEN$E!

 

BY A VOTE OF 2-1, KIM EVANS AND STEVE SWYERS REACHED INTO THE TAXPAYERS’ WALLETS AND HELD AN EXTRVAGANT DINNER FOR THE UNION EMPLOYEES OF THE DISTRICT AND THEIR SPOUSES OR GUESTS AT THE DOUBLETREE HOTEL ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2011.

 
This Firefighter Feast cost taxpayers TENS OF THOUSAND$ OF DOLLAR$ (actual cost yet to be determined) and was being billed as a “recognition dinner.” How many of us work for companies that hold such lavish dinners in this economy and plan to do so every two years??
 

The Monarch Concerned Taxpayers Want to Know Why Directors Evans and Swyers Decided That Not Only Were Active Monarch Employees and Their Guest Wined And Dined At This Extravagant Event, But Retirees and Their Guests Were Also Included. This Included Two Former Employees Who Recently (Unsuccessfully) Sued The Monarch Fire Protection District. And If That Is Not Enough, The Explorer Scouts, For Whom The District Spends Thousands Per Year Already (And Among Whom, Evans’ Son Is One Of Them) Were Invited To Participate In the Festivities. All Of This At Taxpayer Expense Of Course! Sounds To Us Like Evans And Swyers Are At The Taxpayer Feeding Trough And Just Can’t Get Enough.

 
The Monarch Concerned Taxpayers are OUTRAGED at the audacity of Evans and Swyers, but we are not surprised.

Let them know what you think of their unnecessary spending of OUR money:
