A rare moment of clarity!

Mayor Ken Short did make one statement last evening that made perfect sense while attempting to blame me for the township's current budget predicament:

"Mr. Nedd, if you hadn't cut the reserve for uncollectable taxes by $700K, we wouldn't be in this situation right now!"

HELLO! Prior to my reducing this "reserve" from $1.9M to $1.2M, past Republican Washington Township Committees depended on the $700K or so (in excess of our actual uncollectable tax risk) to fund frivolous spending.

With their slush fund now gone, Mayor Short and his GOP comrades actually have to do some work to balance the budget. It’s quite fun to watch!

As Ronald Reagan always said, “Starve the beast!”
