"The reason we had discretionary funds was for these kind of things. … Now, kind of what we are doing is turning travel funds into discretionary funds for the causes we believe in," he said.

    CGM, I agree with spending it on our soldiers families. But, wouldn't it be nice for them not to have to pay for postage anyway when sending things to one another. But, allowing taxpayer monies to be diverted to the charity of the councils choice is a slippery slope.

    I think that offering to pay postage for care packages is them giving the money back to the citizens. If it wasn't spent this way, Payne would find some silly project to spend it on. Care packages postage is a safe bet.

    Why isn't the money given back to its owners, the citizens of Galt? That would be like me borrowing $20.00 from someone, only spending $10.00 for what was necessary, then giving the remaining $10.00 to someone else. Does that seem logical to anyone who is not in government?
