Not Everyone Has Email

Another day, another ridiculous email from Doug Hawkins. This time, it's about saving your tax dollars by refusing to support the U.S. Post Office he claims to have saved in Valley Station.

"Help me cut government waste by sending out information through e-mails. E-mails are free and timely.
A constituent asked me, “Why don’t you mail newsletters through the post office?”

It would cost metro government almost $8,000 to mail one newsletter to every household in a council district. Those are your tax dollars!

That’s a lot of money to spend on information that may be two weeks old by the time you write it, print it and mail it. For those reasons, I have never used your tax dollars to mail newsletters. Some council members mail newsletters through the post office quarterly, costing tens of thousands of dollars.
Like you, I’m tired of government wasting our tax dollars."
