CEDAR RAPIDS DOWNTOWN WELFARE DWARFS POOR WELLINGTON HEIGHTS

10-10-14

Greetings, Gazette Editorial Board, Governor Branstad, and all—

Folks pushing for welfare for the downtrodden Cedar Rapids Wellington Heights neighborhood ought to take welfare grabbing and wasting lessons from Cedar Rapids downtowners—the city’s shadow government!!   

The numbers in the following table show downtowners dwarf Wellington Heights in wasting welfare.   The numbers presented are best guess because  people in Cedar Rapids who seek public records, on how public money has been spent, soon find it costs a lot of their own money. If such public information sought is information the city does not want made public, it takes forever to be provided. City Hall wants folks to pay the city for public information and just come back some other day, or better yet,  just go away period.   Will anyone at City Hall claim to have better numbers showing wasted welfare?  But there is more.

City Hall will whine and claim “we were flooded” without saying because flood protection was purposely ignored and residents were misled to believe misguided, token flood 'protection' was adequate.   City Hall says nothing about being flooded with welfare money. 

If the city would care to provide public assistance comparisons to the numbers in the table, Iowalive would welcome their disclosing this public information. The public would like to know the source of the numbers  as well.
