What the Wilmington Elite Consider "Small Government"


The city contributes around $80,000 a year to WID.
[...]Because of the public-private partnership, Satterfield said the organization doesn't need as much money from local government.

"When people talk about small government, that's a good example of it," Satterfield said. But the city also contributes $60,000 a year to Wilmington Downtown Inc., a downtown development group and about $110,000 to the Wilmington Regional Film Commission. 

Yes, folks, taking $80,000 from us a year is an example of "limited government."  How's that for doublespeak?

What do they "need" the money for anyway?  To pay for their lunches?  I don't think we're getting our money's worth with these "private-public" agencies.
