The amount of debt this county owes to its employees should be the main subject of campaigns for Supervisors. The potentially new Supervisors of all open seats should address the public on how they plan to reduce the two billion dollar debt without creative financing or tricks. Every man woman and child in the county owes over two thousand to the county for its overspending to employees.
At this rate services will further deteriorate to dangerous levels without immediate reform. Today all we get from government is new tax proposals. We need tax and debt reform.
If you read this study that was done several years ago tells us that the Supervisors know the problem exists but are failing to correct it before it over runs us. Thanks to reports from Dan Borenstein of the Times News, the public has been slowly provided information to show the depth and magnitude of this problem.
New potential Supervisorial Candidates need to explain how they plan to take control of this run away debt before our county becomes the first to file bankruptcy.
