HAPPY VALENTINES DAY 2011


>>>>>Tonya is living with brain cancer. Glory Days Grill is helping.


Glory Days Grill is helping Tonya who has had three successful operations in Durham, North Carolina, at the Duke University Medical Center http://www.dukehealth.org/services/brain_tumor/about/research
and it seems like she has beaten back the cancer - for now.

Pat Malone tells me "The expenses that the Lohr family have encumbered are truly daunting. The Lohrs are a great family, pillars of their community, and now, in their time of need, they need our help".

Please consider join Glory Days Grill at Cosner's Corner, in Fredericksburg (http://www.glorydaysgrill.com/#locations/virginia/fredericksburg-cosners-corner), on Tuesday, February 15, 2011, from 4:00 pm to Midnight, to help support Tonya with our special fundraiser.

DELGAUDIO PROPOSALS FOR REDUCING SPENDING


I will propose specific reductions as always to get the rate and the amount down.

The administrator in his presentation says that your amount of money you pay is the same amount as the year 2008.

That is what he says. I know many if not most subscribers are paying more than ever.

I am dealing with a board majority that claims to be saving taxpayers money, while increasing the spending and shutting me down whenever I propose either reduced spending or any reduced rates.

I voted "no" to increasing the taxe rate from $1.30 to $1.32 this year.

Last year I voted no on that 1.30 rate hike too.

If you are new to my distro list, I also routinely offer motions to reduce spending by $100,000,000 and these are the motions that I offered last year that were REJECTED. I voted yes for my motions.

Over the years, some of my proposals were adopted. Most were rejected. Some are still being debated.

I will (again) have reductions to reduce the rate from 1.32 to your proposed rate of $1.15 as citizens have asked.

At 7 million dollars per penny, my $100 million in proposed reductions would yield a $1.15 which is what most citizens have asked.
