Walkertown's town council voted to prohibit graffiti on public buildings even though no buildings have been defaced and they may even lack the ability to enforce the resolution. There are current laws in force from the county that would apply in these situations and it was an example of elected officials doing something just for the appearance of their actions to the public. We have thousands of laws currently not being enforced and one more will not make the world a better place. The public deserved better. Additionally, the council voted to give $500.00 to the Walkertown Wolfpack Cheerleading squad to help pay for expenses for a competition in Florida. The organizers had asked for over $12,000 and last year asked for $8,000 for the same type of competition. The money, $500.00, may not seem like much, but exactly who benefits from the expenditure? This a perfect example of abuse of power by our elected officials. From giving companies tax breaks to relocate to an area at the expense of existing businesses to now cheerleading competitions, where will it end.
