Why have we not seen any reports of staff reductions in our County’s overly bloated Administration which has grown exceedingly rapidly in recent years?
For that matter, why haven’t we seen any sign of good faith efforts by our County Commissioners to tighten their respective belts?

Or, is what we are seeing nothing more than a rerun of the time tested ‘Statue of Liberty’ ploy, where various governments first eliminate those services most beneficial and visible to the public, but retain all of their staffs?
