To be delivered to: St. Petersburg City Council
The Republican National Convention opened with a party in St. Petersburg for delegates, politicians and wealthy donors. City tax payers are on the hook for $580,000 for that party. Now we know that the RNC has raised more than $55 million and may be able to pay these costs. Donor Bill Edwards gave $4.6 million and receives city subsidies. Donors like Sheldon Adelson, Communist China's casino mogul and David Koch spend millions to influence government. They can well afford to pay their bills. Please urge city council to insist these expenses are borne by the RNC, not taxpayers.
