And now we know how much they spent on Lee:
If they had really meant to go after Terry, the buy would have been something around $25K.
With this buy, they essentially bought lots of free media.
On the one hand, nice job getting it for free. On the other, not a big surprise to see the Dems being all talk, with their hand out.
Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle’s press flack, Ron Penzkowski, regarding the the change on the 24% lease on the Mayor’s RED Durango from four to one year:
We truly felt we had a one year lease.
Because “feeling it” is much easier than, say, reading it, right?
Then this line still kills us, on Suttle’s requirements for his new ride:
The only direction Baxter was given was that the SUV had to be a fuel-efficient hybrid, and it had to be red.
Gee Mayor, how about just riding around on a shiny firetruck?
(…I’m not “subtle” about my garish vehicles…)
By the way, lots of talk about Omaha’s Mayor giving huge raises to his new staff (compared to what the previous staff made), while freezing the salaries of everyone else paid by the city.
But really if the Suttle-ites want to make the BIG bucks, they should move to Sarpy County. You go there, and you get open-ended contracts for your services.
And heck, we don’t begrudge the K-Man for his $600K payday. But we do chuckle at those who agreed to hire him apparently without asking what it would cost.
(“Just go ahead and replace all my plumbing, and, uh, let me know what I owe you after you’re done…”)
