How did Laredo's traveling political entourage get as big as it is??

From 2006,  here is the public notice of the city of laredo's legislative trip to our nation's capitol in Washington, DC.   It number a total of 5 (five)  people.  How did it grow so ridiculously high and so expensive?  Yet, despite what the mayor claims, not much has come as a true direct result of their lavish trips.

From the 2006 City of Laredo Agenda :

  1. Now you have the whole council going, city manager and staff, police chief, fire chief, health dept. head, and on and on. Then all the Convention and Visitors Bureau staff attending to help set up for the party at the end of the week. Pues que's eso?!
