Sour grapes

The Daily Item

— In a Letter to the Editor on Dec. 3, Mr. Carl states that the 2014 Northumberland budget does not accommodate for 24-hour police coverage in the borough.

If he wouldn’t have wasted hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on the swimming pool water slide and on the Second Street school that was in very poor condition, maybe there would be enough money for police coverage.

Or, is it just sour grapes because he was not re-elected to borough council?
