    Give the guy a break, Mr Mayor. It costs me about that much to visit my adult children back in NY, with air fare, expenses,hotels, rented car. He should submit an itemized expense report, and that requirement should extend to every town exceptions. He shouldn't be accused of fiscal mismanagement. Fiscal mismanagement is normally the area of expertise of the Federal government.

    Oppression by scorn. Those who have nothing factual to contribute attack with name calling & mistruths. Zinkin was doing his job & exploring options to save taxpayer money. He apparently completed the same type of trip report as the other council members. Perhaps someone should do a Freedom of Info request for Hiremath's trip reports to see how detailed he is... So sick of this spend, spend, spend mentality!!!

    As for this reporter, the misleading headline will put him well on the road to a job at the Red Star. This type of slanted reporting is why newspapers are failing nationwide.

    I believe the Mayor Hiremath was justified in his criticism in light of Zinkin's previous "return on investment" dissertations. Coundilman Zinkin railed against the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce because, in his opinion, their quarterly report did not contain sufficient information to justify the financial support it was getting from the Town. He has also made similiar comments in the past about other agencies supported by the Town. In doing so Councilman Zinkin establishes his own standard for financial support. Submitting an agenda for a trip report does not meet the standard he sets for others.
