City Backs Down As Seniors Hit The Streets!

Don't throw out grandma!

The City Council and the Mayor have been talking making up budget shortfalls caused by lower sales tax revenues due to the poor economy. They are ready to cut jobs, close some parks, pick up garbage once a week and other cuts.
Angered by the idea of their center closing a large group of senior citizens "ambushed" Mayor Joe Adame and some city council members recently outside the entrance to city hall. As a result plans to close at least one senior center were dropped!
An article in today's Caller/Times indicates the city has a fund of over $30 million accumulating since 2002 which was intended to be spread out to various businesses and other projects to help boost the local economy. Something seems very wrong with this picture.
