Smell the dandelions

Mayor’s wish for more spending control – get’s turned down 5-2 vote by council

Mayor’s wish for more spending control – get’s turned down 5-2 vote by council.

How absolutely incredible is that how do these people sleep at night?

A shortfall of some $2 million plus on a yearly budget? Businesses either closing or having very hard times. People moving away looking for work. And lots else on the negative side, unfortunately.

What does all that really matter when you’ve got five fat cats that don’t know which way the wind is blowing? Two return incumbents mentioned “we need to trust our staff” or “If we haven’t got trust in our staff, then there’s a problem.”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out our problems are coming from the past and the empire that this staff has created. You obviously shouldn’t have trusted them in the past (four incumbents) and what makes you think it’s going to change now?

Kudos to you Mayor and Ron Kerr – don’t change for one dollar more than $20,000.

Let’s take a second vote on this and maybe a third for the really thick ones.  I’m so, so, so, sorry to be using such strong language. No I’m not. Let’s wake up and start smelling the dandelions.
