Newark Mayor’s Retreat

The Mayor of the City of Newark wants you to pay for a vacation — and it isn’t yours.

Instead, she wants to whisk away the entire City Council, the City Manager, Deputy Manager, and the heads of various city departments to a remote location where they can get to know each other better.

Not only is this a really bad idea, but it’s a terribly irresponsible expense of your tax dollars.

They’ve raised utility rates, attempted tax hikes, tried raising the Mayor’s salary, and almost instituted a Rain Tax.

We defeated most of these things with your help.

Add the Data Center and Power Plant to that mix and we’ve got a very active and divisive environment.

Council votes are no longer rubber stamps of 7 to 0 like they used to in the old days. Now, certain council members are actually taking their oaths seriously and the votes are falling 5 to 2, or 4 to 3.

The Mayor and her bureaucrat buddies in the City Administration are not pleased and they want to corral dissenting council members back into line.

Thousands of dollars that should be spent more responsibly will be spent on a lavish getaway to “educate” certain council members on “how things are supposed to work.”

We can’t allow this to happen.

Your attendance is needed at the next council meeting to let the Mayor and Council members know that this is unacceptable.

Monday, June 9th at 7:00 PM
Newark Municipal Building
220 South Main Street
Newark, DE 19711

Please show up early and put your name on the list for 3 minutes of public comment at the start of the meeting.

Tell the Mayor and City Manager to focus on the business of the city and stop proposing irresponsible ways to spend our tax dollars.

In Liberty,

Eric Boye

P.S. We have just received information that the Mayor and City Administration is planning to take a vacation using your tax dollars.

This is an unacceptable abuse of our tax dollars.

Please attend the Newark Council Meeting on Monday to urge the Council members to VOTE NO on this agenda item.
