The city’s budget is at deficit this year, and more cuts probably will be needed. Where do you think the city can trim expenses, how much money do you think that could save and how do you think it would affect residents? Please be as specific as you can. 

We must ensure that the City has all the equipment, personnel and budgets necessary for those essential services for which we have municipal governments. To do anything else crowds out the entrepreneurship for which this city is known, and discourages those companies who would enter our market if they did not have to compete against government-sponsored and funded competitors. We should reconsider the necessity of charging a $100 million dollar “preparedness center.” on our grandchildren’s credit cards.
