From Red Righter
I think I’m going to become an adviser,” Cuffs announced to the regulars hanging out at the North Street Hotel.
“Great!” Benny Riddles shouted. “What are you going to advise about?”
“I don’t know exactly. Budget stuff, I think,” he replied. “I heard they need a bunch of citizens to give free advice to the county commissioners on how to spend—and stop spending—our tax money. If your number gets called and you’re selected, you’ll sit on some kind of “Special Delegation Advice Committee of Smart Cecil Citizens on Money Spending Matters.”
“Didn’t those paid politicians just get elected and start working at their jobs about a month ago?” Z Man asked.
“Yeah!” Cuffs said, “but it looks like some people think these commissioners, that county voters picked, already need help.”
