Link Responds to Attacks

2/22/12 – Columbus Mayor Bob Link responded to social media attacks against City staff for recent changes to City Recreation policies. Link denied rumors labeling him as “anti-recreation.” The Mayor said he was sorry for all the bad feelings. Volunteer groups working with youth baseball, football and softball do not currently receive City financial oversight. When he requested a financial report from one group the Mayor was told it was “none of your business.” Link responded that City tax dollars are used for the playing fields and the City should be handling registration fees.
