PUYALLUP: Why should citizens pay for mayor’s sensitivity training?

I don’t understand why the City of Puyallup should pay $1,700 for Mayor Rick Hansen to take sensitivity training. His salary is way above the average citizen’s; he should have paid it himself.

This money could be used for some citizens who are trying to put food on their table. Plus as a mature man he should have known better.
