Dear Sheila Kihne and Crystal Kelley:
As fellow Eden Prairie bloggers, I imagine you've been reading TwoPuttTommy's posts on Mayor Phil Young's inaccurate billing. And by now you've read the Star Tribune's article Eden Prairie mayor reimbursed for 26 no-shows.
How embarrassing do you think we ought to perceive Mayor Young's failings? If you did what he did--in your place of employment--wouldn't you have been fired on the spot?
Furthermore: Imagine for a moment you were EP's mayor. Do you think it conceivable that you could inadvertently submit reimbursement requests for 26 meetings you didn't attend? Does that really seem plausible to you?
Can I get a printable response?
