Sometimes, you get what you pay for...

Dear Mayor Bell,

I read with interest last Saturday's N&O article announcing a major effort to improve the perceived image problem of our great Bull City: "Make !T Durham."

But, sir, $105,000 per year?

I know some individuals who spend more on their own personal self-promotion. Surely we can do better than an outlay of 53 cents per resident.

In fact, if you look at our own promotional web info, the number 1 misconception about Durham is that an image problem even exists as 71% of residents feel pretty darn good about living here.

Please go back and re-read the note I handed to you at the opening of the Terry Sanford documentary - if we're going to have a limited budget, then we need to be enlisting the help of volunteers like myself to sing the praises of our great city in forums like these and others.

You know where to find me.

Sincerely,
Bull City Booster
