Letter: TNRD spending spree simply unacceptable

Editor:

There are so many issues in this story that it boggles the mind.

article continues below

I am disgusted by the acceptance of a settlement for former TNRD CAO Sukh Gill. It proves to me that most people named in the story knew what was going on and find it acceptable. It is not.

I do not want my taxes paying for gifts for public employees, free dinners, coffees, etc. Public business should be conducted in an office, not over lunch or coffee.

When someone buys your lunch, they expect something in return, hence the expression: “There is no free lunch.”

What other under-the-table deals are hidden by the settlement between Gill and the regional district?

By the way, does the TNRD issue tax receipts for diamond bracelets?
