News That Matters
"I find it unacceptable that we would leave the American taxpayer with a tab of tens of billions of dollars while failing to receive any serious concessions from the industry."
Good Tuesday Morning,
So, how did the tour of Tilly Foster and the Physical Services Committee meeting go yesterday? Jeez, I'm sorry you asked. Don't mind if I'm a little bitter this morning, or cranky, but when I woke at 6:30 this morning and the temperature was 1.7 degrees I realized that after yesterday's excursion and meeting hell had finally frozen over. At least the pipes in the unheated crawl space under my house didn't burst.
This is the land, the Land of Do What You're ToldThis column has raised cautionary flags at the County level and I do suspect there will be some changes made to The Contract and for that I am most proud. While no one would address the source of those concerns directly, there was allusion to them and a few have been addressed. But more needs to be done, more assurances written down and The Rules need to be applied fairly and consistently.
And now, the (slightly cranky) News:
