Yup... time to slash and burn.
Everyone started squealing bloody murder when Mayor Bloomberg started the same thing here in NYC. Sure, lots of fat was cut... but lots of nice
programs and cultural amenities were also killed or nearly killed. But in the end, now the city is stronger and looking to emerge from a horrible
budget deficit after 9/11/2001 (we lost a commercial tax-base nearly equivalent to all of downtown Atlanta, Georgia!).
The hard hitting slash-and-burn of budgets is something a politician is ill-equipped to do... that's why Bloomberg was able to get it done... and
maybe Arnie has a chance... time will tell.
