What's the public purpose served by the mayor's skybox? Getting re-elected

March 23, 2012

While some of the ideas in your editorial about the mayor's skybox ("The people's skybox," March 21) had merit, anyone who read your statement that sometimes "the invitees seem to serve little public purpose" needs to understand that the purpose being served is the same one shared by the majority of Maryland politicians: Currying favor and getting reelected.

The skybox is just another political tool for that purpose.
