Government’s job is first to preserve and protect freedom for future generations. How is that one working for you?
Next, government should only be doing what citizens can’t do for themselves: police, fire, water, sewer and roads.
Maybe citizens need to start building their own roads and charge a toll to use them. Local governments are doing a terrible job maintaining roads, how many of you have damage caused by potholes? Check out the bike paths though, smooth as silk. (That’s couldn’t be because the mayor owns a bike shop!)
All Day Budget Session: Listen to Kathleen Lorenz at 7:30:00. She thinks spending $3 million on roads out of a $138 million budget is something citizens should be sharing with people who think the Town doesn’t spend enough.
Kathleen: The Town plans to spend a little over 2% of the budget on roads. Citizens want better roads. The Town spends almost 98% of all tax dollars on other things instead of what the citizens want. Do you represent the Town or voters?
You are celebrating this Ms. 2% Lorenz?
Obviously better priorities are needed. April 6th voters can elect those who know that. I’m still not done with the Budget Session. Stay tuned.
