Barron’s Funds Questioned

To the Editor:

While the Courier seems willing to print any Letter to the Editor it receives from Councilman Barron, you may also consider seeing a report on where the Councilman has placed his discretionary funds.

A new web site called “It’s Your Money” provides this information.

You can go directly to It’s Your Money at: http://www.itsyourmoneynyc. org/app/earmarks/ and put in his name.

Perhaps local residents might like to see this information as well as that of the other NYC Council members. It makes for interesting reading.

Of particular note is the small proportion of his funding Barron provided to senior services. While clearly youth programs need support, the seniors of this community need it as well.
