I am still trying to understand the rationale behind the Government spending millions of taxpayers' money on projects that will only have cosmetic value while public sector workers cannot get a reasonable wage increase.
Let's look at just three of these projects.
1) 2018 — $17 million spent on Montego Bay sign.
2) 2022 — $18.2 million spent for Senator Kamina Johnson-Smith's campaign for the commonwealth secretary.
3) September 2022 — $12 million spent on Negril sign.
These are only three of the senseless expenditures that the Government has undertaken while turning a blind eye to the plight of the ordinary Jamaican who is trying to bounce back from the negative impact of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
One also has to look at the difficulties faced by hundreds of Government-funded schools at the start of the new school year.
How does the Government expect its citizens to understand and trust them to make decisions that will ultimately make life better for them.
I honestly do not feel encouraged to pay my taxes if it will be used for selfish political gains while ignoring the needs of its people.
These are my views.
