Our Holiday Wish

Thank you one and all for your best wishes and kind regards as we approach the holidays. Thanks to this blog and my talented fiance, I am able to express my sincerest best wishes for everyone who has visited, and continues to visit, our blog. We all face challenging times ahead and a new understanding and patience will be needed to get through these troubled times. Together we can make a difference, slow maybe, but steady.

Take care of the ones that are dearest to you and show some compassion for those who are less fortunate. Our world will be better for it. Stay well, stay informed, and bring peace to your lives.

Back in town after the holidays and just checking in to see what’s new and happening. I hear the budget cuts in the state are going to be much deeper than we previously heard, and that cities and towns are going to face deep cuts. Have any information on that and is there anything we can do about what budgets in the town bear the bulk of those cuts? Happy New Year to all our fellow bloggers.

Happy new year to all, although, not quite sure what there is to be happy about. Jim, do you know the date the Turnpike Authority votes on the increase? Just curious to follow up on what the vote will be. And budget cuts seem to have the potential for being much deeper than we have been led to believe. Any insight you can give us in that area? You might still be on vacation but would be interested in an updates you have when you get back. I like many on here use the internet access at my office to stay in touch here, so I won't be back to check until Monday.

Did the decrim law go into effect today officially? I hear all this talk about them not being ready yet, so wondering if they put off this actually taking effect. I guess I am just too afraid to believe it is really now the law and not just another case of the will of the voter being ignored.

Good People,

Welcome back and thanks for the notes. As you may have heard and read, our State, like every other State is in deep financial trouble. Tuff choices will have to be made very soon by those elected elite who have gotten us into this mess to begin with. We all need to be vigilant to the proposals they make and to speak out against those who will continue to take advantage of our good nature.

As you will read on this blog, I have proposed a common sense idea that hopefully most of you will support. Cutting the salary line of our elected officials at the State House. There's been no better time, in my memory, than now to bring this forward.

Increase's in taxes and decrease in services will be their answer... let's not let them.

No telling now, what the toll increase will be, nor the famous gas tax increase, but you and I know, the State is in deep trouble and they will put the burden on our backs for resolution.... let's not let them. Fiscal responsibility is in my house as it should be in their house, The State House.. now lets remind them
