Now back up a month. The place - Wicomico County Council chambers - where the BOE, Finance Director, and County Executive are giving a presentation to our County Council about how good the county was doing financially in that employment was recently up, revenues were increasing, housing market appeared to have bottomed and that there might be light at the end of the tunnel. In other words, they were optimisitc about the county's financial future. Just like the TV show right? And for a bonus - some new repackaged information comes to light two weeks later and makes one of the council members change her decision to give the go-ahead for the new school. Kind of just like the TV show right. The County Council has to decide who is giving truthful information. The only trouble is this game costs the taxpayers millions!
In order for the taxpayers to have a fair chance in this game I sent the presentation to the Board of Public Works so that they too can get in the game and decide the facts of this story. I think I'll even go up to the final hearing in Baltimore just to view the outcome and be there in case they have any questions. If anyone else would like to go with me - please contact me as I'm in the local phone book.
