Budget cuts

County Commissioner Michael Page comes up with the understatement of the year in this morning's N&O, noting "I have a feeling we're going to be bombarded" after County Manager Mike Ruffin announced some pretty draconian cuts across the board in county operations and services.

See, here's what i think needs to happen.

Mike and i need to sit down over lunch and figure out what services i need provided by the county. Then, we'll make sure that those get fully funded. Any other county services that i never use? Cut those to the bone. Hell, why should my taxes pay for things like schools or a Life and Science Museum when my kids are already grown?
