Flushing Your Money

I wonder how much water could be saved if Governor Richardson stopped flushing taxpayer money down the drain?

Gov. Bill Richardson has hired a consultant to help his administration develop new policy ideas.

The job was advertised as paying up to $200,000 a year, plus travel and expenses. Pennsylvania-based Public Works LLC was selected to advise Richardson. The team of experts will focus on at least five major policy areas.

Here I thought Bill Hume, Governor Richardson’s senior policy advisor, was already being paid to do this job. Then again, maybe it’s a better idea that someone who writes letters to the editor like this (subscription) is not tasked with developing new policy ideas..
