Old pigs at new trough, again

Re: Artist doesn’t like new public art (The News, Oct. 12).
In response to the money doled out for a terrible form of ‘art’ erected at Westminster Savings, as a retired pensioner on a fixed income, I am so upset with this horrendous ugly piece of tubing and laminated glass. I cannot believe that our city came up with $20,000 when things are so tight fiscally. What is going through their minds when they take it upon themselves to support such garbage?
When I came out of the mall one day and watched the installation of this monstrosity, I was saying to myself, “I hope our tax dollars are not involved”.
But now I read in our local paper that the district is involved. I remember the slogans during our last municipal elections, when the catch phrase was ‘fiscal responsibility.’ Oh well, just new pigs at the old trough, again.
