My hundreds of loyal followers get this.. all things considered this legislative body (most) are working as hard as they can to tame the tax monster. If you look at the budget line by line it will give you a headache.. there is really not a lot to cut.

Any legislator who votes against the sale of the county home, should be voted out of office.

The county home is a luxary that we can no longer afford.

Nazzaro recommended offsetting the amount by decreasing the Medicaid spending, however the recommendation was not pursued.
