Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2008 | I wonder if Mayor Jerry Sanders has figured out that to come up with millions of dollars, he has to cancel some projects or functions that costs millions of dollars. He keeps trying to take the employees’ money and close libraries. This is not where the big money is.
Close Centre City Development Corp. and the other agencies that are costing the city millions of dollars. He needs to get real and do something that he and his cronies don’t want to do, not what the regular citizen doesn’t want. Go for the real gold and charge for garbage pickup too, by the way. Make the public pay for the services they want.
It may be ugly, but he may need to raise taxes. He needs to do something. The latest report saying he was upset with City Council for not voting his way just says that he has a personal interest in this rather than the citizen’s interest, in my opinion.
Don’t get mad, get busy.
