After controversially reducing the budget for what many consider essential city services; including the Fire Department, police overtime, recreation centers, and community swimming pools, Mayor Sheila Dixon appears to have even slashed her own personal transportation budget.
Dixon was seen yesterday driving herself in an all electric car. Forget the bodyguard/driver, no huge gas guzzling SUV, nope, just a green micro-car. Word is the new move saves taxpayers in excess of $250,000 annually.
Already an avid bicyclist, sources tell the Baltimore Spectator, Mayor Dixon has layed down the challenge to other big city mayors. Don't just talk about protecting the environment, take action!
