I applaud the fiscal restraint and sacrifice, but wouldn't it be nice if our City Council rescinded the raises they gave themselves a few years back in the name of sacrifice?

And wouldn't it be nice if the taxpayers didn't pay for a city vehicle plus insurance for an employee who makes over $180,000? What other city employees have this perk, and how much would we save if the City Council eliminated this sort of perk?

And does any one else think it is a coincidence that this story appeared in the paper the same day the Council voted on the tax rate?

My problem with this is that Frank Raffa did NOT come in second. "Blank" came in second. I feel more strongly than ever that we need to make "None of the Above" a valid option on ballots.

I agree. That's why I never leave it blank and always write in a eligible candidate. If only more people would exercise that right!
