Elite Visitors To the District Pocket $2,000 Souvenir Gift
Talking about DC’s new key to the city for visiting muckety-mucks. $2000.. that’s a lotta bling, that the city’s taxpayers will pay for.. naturally.
From the article: D.C. Council member Jim Graham (D-Ward 1), told of the price of the key, called it a “nice symbolic gesture” but added, “Surely it could be accomplished for less money.
“All this type of thing is open to criticism by the average person who doesn’t understand why we have to spend money on this, and there’s a lot to be said for that point of view.”
The average person… oh by that you mean the people who LIVE here? I’m so glad our opinion matters.
