Subject: 20160703 Does town council pay for greeting banners?
Dear PM Lee
I refer to my queries to my town council (enclosed).
– Who pays for the greeting banners?
– How much does the town council spend on banners every year?
Residents’ conservancy charges have been arbitrarily increased and I believe the town council has not explored all cost-cutting measures.
MPs are paid an overly-generous allowance and if they feel the need to greet residents during all festive occasions, it should be at their expense, not ours. Would PM Lee’s relatives be asked to pay for greeting cards sent by PM Lee? It’s a ridiculous situation with such an arrangement by town councils, isn’t it? I am assuming residents are paying for the banners.
It has been most unproductive for my town council to continue acting like my master. Why can’t it provide answers to simple queries?
Thank you and have a nice day.
I notice there are banners with greetings from MPs.
Does our town council pay for such banners (photo below)? How much does the town council spend on these every year?
