Letter to Editor: How the Government is Wasting Taxpayer Money

Dear Editor, A long, long time ago, in a land known as America, cities created municipal departments to serve the essential needs of the community in the most efficient way.

Reader Infuriated by ‘Mt. Olive Student, 18, Gunned Down Sunday in Unincorporated Duarte/Monrovia’ (June 8 Issue)
