Come on Michael!!

So Councilman and former mayoral candidate Michael Collins suggested that the city of toledo give the Toledo Symphony $30,000 so they can go to Carnegie Hall??

Granted, it would be an honor, but really? In these times?? I cant believe the suggestion was even brought up and I hope the rest of the council does not back this.

Have written a note to Mr C, and will post his reply - if any out here

No votes yet

How much of your own personal funds did you donate before declaring that this was a proper use of taxpayer funds???

If it's such a good idea, then I'm certain every member of city council has forked over a significant amount toward the Symphony's goal.

WOW! Collins suggests to give 30,000 to Symphony, I get 7,900 for a civil suit for being beat up in handcuffs by a police officer and getting two staples. Oh and the officer was found guilty of two counts of excessive force. The word is the city is broke and council won't approve anything over 10,000. This city for the most part is run by immoral human beings who could care less about the truth and doing whats right..

Why were you in handcuffs to begin with?

DTOM, I'm sure you were totally compliant and respectful, and answered truthfully when questioned by the cops. And I'm just as sure that, after you were cuffed and talking to the cop about the weather, he decided to bust you in the chops for no good reason. Happens to a lot of us all the time. But, hey, you say you got $7,900 and two staples out of the deal. So you're good. Hope they fit your stapler.

Patience is a great virtue.

I see by your comments you know nothing about police procedure and use of force. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT I DID, AS A POLICE OFFICER YOU VIOLATE POLICY BY BEATING SOMEONE IN THE HEAD WHILE HANDCUFFED MORONS...go back under the bridge you trolls until the next episode.....

While true, police shouldn't rough up a handcuffed individual, but if you got arrested for beating on your wife/GF or molesting a child, I want to buy those cops lunch.

100% , but I was sitting on a friends porch with permission, police came by and said we were trespassing, it all went south from there.....
