Go figure!

I will freely admit: of all of the various reactions possible for City Manager Augustus to have to the publication of Governor Patrick's FY15 budget, this was not one I expected:
But Worcester City Manager Edward M. Augustus Jr. pointed out that is less than half a percent increase in local school aid, which combined with no increase in state funding for municipal operations will add millions more to the $11 million shortfall city officials had expected for the fiscal year beginning July 1. 
He started with the small increase in Chapter 70.
I do not recall ever hearing that be the first thing mentioned by a city manager.
