Opinion: The city of Stephenville does not need to spend $84k on a lobbyist.


Should the city of Stephenville spend taxpayer dollars on a lobbyist?


This is a question that will be answered at the upcoming city council meeting at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11.


I, for one, think it's a terrible use of tax dollars, especially when the sum is $84,000. I can think of many places the city could invest $84,000 and a lobbyist doesn't even make the list.

This topic is coming on the heels of the 2020 primary election, when an overwhelming majority of voters in Erath County said “no” to a proposition on taxpayer-funded lobbying.


I hope the city council does the right thing and votes no to this wasteful spending.
