Pr. Geo.'s spent $43K on inauguration

By Washington Post editors

Prince George's County spent more than $43,000 in government funds on the Dec. 6 inauguration of County Executive Rushern L. Baker III (D) and the County Council, county officials said, according to the Gazette.

The public cost of the ceremony in front of the Upper Marlboro government building comes in addition to more than $500,000 Baker raised and spent on his three-day inauguration celebration last month.

Read more about the money spent for inauguration ceremonies in Prince George's County in the Gazette.

Values that say raise a 1/2 million dollars to spend on a party when you have the highest foreclosures, highest unemployment, lowest ranked schools, and highest crime in the area pretty much sum up the problem with Prince George's County residents and their leadership. Governor O'Malley and County Exec Leggett did the right thing. Taxpayers should get their 43k back, but they don't care. No wonder PG is the wart of the DMV. I have high hopes for Mr. Baker and wish him the best, but Howard County and Charles County are looking better everyday, if I could only find some sucker to buy my house.
