The truth is that four Commissioners raised their budget from $5.8 million to $7.2 million. That is a 20% increase. In fact, they have raised the budget 49% in five years, while the district population has only increased 14%. We cannot afford to raise budgets that much faster than the district is growing.
Is it any wonder why we voted for Initiative 695?
