Paducah Power, city officials squandering taxpayers' money



I agree with Dwight Smith's letter of Aug. 27. We, as the constituents and taxpayers of the city of Paducah, should hold not only Paducah Power accountable, but the elected officials of Paducah who continue to squander our money on foolish and wasteful projects, e.g., the "pavilion" balloon, the throwing money in the river project, the Prairie State fiasco, etc.

As stated in the article, "Lawsuit accuses power provider of misleading town," Aug. 20, Paducah Sun, the citizens of Batavia, Illinois, have filed a class action lawsuit against Prairie State Energy consultants. Our city government needs to step up to the plate and either join this class action lawsuit or file one of their own.

Almost weekly there is an article in this paper about Paducah losing its population. Need we wonder why? Let's not only encourage, but insist that the mayor and city council govern more effectively. Apparently Allan Rhodes Jr. is the only member who acts in the best interest of the citizens of Paducah. I encourage residents of Paducah to contact our city government and let them know we expect accountability and efficiency with our taxpayer money.

Title: Allen Rhodes for Mayor?

Maybe there should be a campaign started to get Allen Rhodes to run for Mayor in the next Mayoral election?
