A lot of local officials drive taxpayer-funded sport utility vehicles. My column today raised the question of whether that is a good practice, whether it would be a nice gesture for a mayor or town supervisor to trade in the old gas guzzler for something a little more economical.
The officials I spoke with said they had good reasons for driving an SUV.
Is this an issue that matters to you? Do you care what your elected leaders drive?
