Richard, please keep in mind where that "state funding" comes from. Let's stop spending and pay the bills before adding more at any level!

And how about keeping existing businesses in town. Are the rumors true that Hiome Goods is leaving town?

Oh bob, trust me...I know every time I look at my pay stub where it comes from. I would much rather work to get funding for improvements that will be permanent and help create an asset that will attract businesses to our community. Fiscal responsibility in my opinion doesn't mean close the checkbook, it means send wisely. Unfortunately these are times of extremes...I have had to ask families on assisted housing to move their BMW so we could put their grandmother who is on public healthcare in the ambulance for her head cold. Apparently it's cheaper to take advantage of a system than drive and pay for parking. So frustrating!! I don't want to burden my kids in a mountain of debt, but conversely I don't want to raise them in a crumbling ghost town either.
