08/06/2008: "What, We Should Worry?"


To the editor:

I just read the County press release on the Auditor’s Financial Report: “Time to Start Worrying.”

With all due respect to the Auditor (we shouldn’t shoot the messenger), the “time to start worrying” was last December, when the County Council passed a budget reportedly increasing County spending by 10%, with hardly a whimper, despite clear signs that the real estate market was tanking, and the economy and tax revenues were going down with it.
