Two city councilors who deserve a letter

1) District 1 City Councilor Joff Smith. His comments yesterday, attempting to claim the 102% funding based on moving money around, demonstrates that he doesn't get it. Health care for teachers is part of the foundation budget. You don't get a pass on new funding because you've moved around the old funding.

2) At-Large Councilor Rick Rushton. His request that the School Department find five new places to cut spending make one wonder if he's been anywhere near a school budget over the past six years. One suspects not. He's standing in front of a skeleton, trying to cut more fat. It isn't there.

You'll find their contact information, as always, to the right.
