Legislators Ranzenhofer & Cusack (both Republicans) voted against the budget cuts last week. They say they did so because the cuts were being considered hastily. I agree. They're calling a presser today to propose some alternatives to complete shut-downs of county departments. Any time a politician proposes actually thinking about things before carrying them out, then that politician needs to be paid attention to. Honestly, this whole episode is merely proving that we have no use whatsoever for county government. All county assets should be transferred to state and local authorities, and all county duties should be doled out to the state and municipalities.
