There are numerous examples of Baltimore City's tax dollars being spent imprudently. There was $500,000 paid to a marketing firm to come up with that not so catchy slogan, "Baltimore, get in on it". There was $12,000,000 in federal stimulus money originally provided for improvements and maintenance to infrastructure (roads, bridges, tunnels) which got reallocated for "infrastructure" (repaved track roads and road barriers) related to the Baltimore Grand Prix. There is the approximately $300,000,000 for the Hilton Convention Center Hotel whose projected revenues for the City were grossly overstated. And the list goes on.
