My Minnesota: The Receiving End of Aid Cuts
Mayor, City of Royalton
I'm mayor for our city and if our city council did our budget like the State government does its, we'd be put out of office! We include inflation when budgeting for the next year's disbursements and underestimate our revenues so we know we'll be able to make ends meet.
We cut every department this year - starting with the mayor/council! Perhaps the Governor needs to show how he plans on cutting his part of the budget before he takes aim at cities/counties/schools.
We need to focus on educating our next generation, providing affordable health care to all Minnesotans, and improving our infrastructure.
