read about the 2010 municipal budget, Vice Mayor Howard Popper continues to tell how they are cutting spending across the board by 20%. Well folks, this is nothing but a big a LIE. Remember LOWER TAXES NOW?
Truth be told, after SEVEN budget meetings, the committee has only cut 6% the "departmental expenses", a category of spending which represents only 12% of the overall budget.
It is time to end the lies and get to work. The schools have made public their tough choices to deal their fiscal challenges. It's time for the Popper and his fellow committeemen to "man up" and do the same.
