My “other” job is being a Yakima City Councilmember and we have spent quite a bit of time recently talking about salary AND benefits for city employee unions.  Boy can those benefits add up!  How about your benefits package?  Can you even call it a “package”? Me neither.

Yakima’s New Anti-Gang Center Under Attack – Dave Responds

Conventional?  Not happening.  My belief is that when people go out of their way to say something that is misleading, wrong or ridiculous they need to be challenged so that others won't take it as truth by a lack of opposition.

Members of the community and the Yakima City Council have spent a great deal of time and energy preparing for the Yakima Youth and Family Development center Grand Opening held Tuesday night.  There was an excellent turnout, plenty of media coverage and an article in the YHR that only drew two comments so far.  Both are critical, and that's ok, but both are wrong and both authors know better.
