Olentangy board member Julie Feasel posted this comment on another blog:
I just want to point out that Olentangy did make $6 million in cuts to future spending BEFORE even going on the ballot and we continue to look at how we can trim costs. (emphasis added)
Did you get that? They made cuts to future spending when the issue is this fiscal year and next fiscal year. Is this her idea of cutting costs?
Really, why do I care that they cut projected costs, effective FY2010, when it's FY2009 that has the supposed negative balance (I say supposed as there is no real deficit -- read my previous post)?
Just think about it: There are costs that can be cut, yet Feasel and company are waiting until 2010. And, they want to raise your taxes for such nonsense.
This is the logic which guides the district. Amazing!
note: According to Feaselian logic, I am a financial genius and a good steward of my money since I decided not to buy an aircraft carrier in 2010. I cut $1 billion is costs. Wow!
