LtGov Barnes' Limo Service, Your Tax Dollars

If you believe what the State Police say about "security", then Lt Gov Mandela Barnes is under serious threats against his life while in the State Capitol.


More likely:  Barnes likes being driven around in a big, black, Suburban, with big muscular escorts using lapel-microphones, just like tin-pot dictators in Central America.

Either way, you pay a LOT for Lt Gov Barnes.  At the rate he's going, we'll pay $220,000 to guard him at church (another security risk!!), at home, and in the Capitol during 2019.  That does NOT include the expense of the Suburban itself.

His predecessor's protection cost $8,500 for all of 2018.
