Dopes

The Times continues to sink to new lows.

The Wednesday, June 29, 2016 issue headline was “Socorro man arrested in cocaine case”.

Ho hum.  If every cocaine arrest deserved a headline they would have to start issuing special editions.

More important

At the bottom of the front page they reported that our city manager has proposed a 2017 budget that would increase our taxes by 7 per cent.

Our mayor says he will veto it.

Thank you mayor.

We deserve better

    The City Manager wants ANOTHER tax INCREASE and City Council minions want $250,000 for Christmas lights for San Jacinto. Do any of THEM have any idea where all this THOUSANDS, MILLIONS of $$$ comes from? To THEM it’s only money and not theirs. Don’t we have chug holes, streets that need repair, re-striped, where this QUARTER of a MILLION$$$ could be put to better use for the TAXPAYERS of El Taxo?? Yes, Mr Mayor, for a change everything that these Council minions try to blow off money on should be VETOED. How many THOUSANDS of lights are already at San Jacinto??

    Get rid of the chief performance officer position.

    Yesterday’s Times photo of the mayor and city manager holding hands and having a kumbaya moment was sort of sweet.

    What do we get for a 7% increase? A 3-day week for city employees instead of a 4-day week as currently? This is the problem with government – they start with last year’s budget and add more rather than seeking restraint. In the private sector you start with a profit target and then work revenue and costs into that. While this is not possible in government, restraint as a goal is.

    Veto it, Mayor.j
