Creative Solutions to the Growing Deficit
I think it's time for our city government to get creative about solutions to closing this budget deficit. Smarter, not greater, taxes can really help us out. Closing loopholes in corporate tax evasions is another solution. Ending wasteful spending on obsolete and ineffective programs is necessary. I'd like to see this city get smarter about spending and collecting money. And I am grateful for Phil's work on finding millions of additional dollars in uncollected revenues for the city -- we need more of this type of hard work.
