Living Within Constraints

Every level of government needs to concentrate on living within the constraints of funds available to them. Taxpayers are being asked to take pay freezes, pay cuts and in the most difficult circumstances job cuts and we still hear from our local representatives that spending must be increased, levels of taxation must be increased long term projects that are still mostly in the design phase cannot be postponed. We have to ask, “Why doesn’t shared sacrifice and restraint extend to government activities?”

Do we really need to continue to pass referenda that increase the cost of living for our seniors still fortunate to live independently in their own homes?

Do we really need to spend any savings gained by closing schools on new programs and increased wages?

Do we really need to take more land off the tax rolls by placing it under public ownership when we can’t successfully manage and care for land that is already in the public domain?
