Letter to Editor: Was trip to India a political game?
Fremont Councilmember Natarajan and Vice Mayor Bacon, along with their entourage (Deputy City Manager, Ecomonic Development Director, and Assistant City Manager) recently visited India on a trip paid for out of public funds (Councilmember Natarajan and FremontÕs Assistant City Manager extended their trip). The Fremont City Council has indicated that the benefits this trip provided for us, the citizens of Fremont (since you and I did pay for this trip), will be presented to Council in 6-12 months.
A wise person pointed out that one of the games politicians play is to use public funds to pay a consulting firm to prepare a report, appearing to prove that whatever scheme the politicians are trying to promote, is beneficial to voting citizens.
This trip to India looks like one of those schemes to me!
