Tari, tell us again about inflation

By:  Diane Benjamin

All the tax and spending increases since Renner became mayor he blames on one thing:  inflation.

See this report from the City website:  http://www.cityblm.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=8145

actxTotal spending for 2009 through 2014 is listed.  Click it to make it more readable.

Since 2015 has not been added, I looked it up.

Actual 2015:  144,183,767  http://www.cityblm.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=9336   (PDF page 38)

That’s $8,380,745 more than 2014.

$13,606,709 more than 2013.

Here’s the Social Security inflation adjustment:  https://www.ssa.gov/news/cola/automatic-cola.htm

January 2013 — 1.7%
January 2014 — 1.5%
January 2015 — 1.7%
January 2016 — 0.0%

Seems to be a problem Tari.

  1. 5.5% spending increase per year since Mr. Renner’s election. What is there to show for this? More consultants to provide new unaffordable comprehensive master plans because the previous paid for plans were not read or implemented. Three different consulting firms for 3 separate downtown hotel feasibility studies–on and on.
