Boulder City council needs I-phones, laptops and budget increase to do their job.
Of course they need all of these things to do their job effectively as a council. Criticism of them on this point is unfounded and comes from snibbly nosed reporters at the Daily Camera and from here. Yes the entire council needs the budget increase recommended by the city manager. Yes they need the latest in I-phone technology. Yes they need laptops and any thing else available. What ever any city employee gets, the council should have. Absolutely no two ways about it. These people are busy, hardly paid anything and the least we can do is make sure they have the equipment , budget and tools to do the job.
Boulder is the most famous small city in America with the best living conditions, economy, work environment and quality of life. Our city council should have the very best of everything at their disposal. We need to take care of them. Their jobs are very important on the world wide scene as well. They are our ambassadors to business and culture world wide. We at Boulder Channel 1 News have often criticized the council, but not on this issue. They are our window to business and ecconomy and we need to support their efforts 100%. This is the official Position of Boulder Channel 1 News.
