Get wht you want out of elected officials

Original post made by Kevin Crispie on Aug 9, 2009

Actually, they have surprisingly little discretion in how they spend the budget because of numerous ballot initiatives and court decisions. We, the voters, have been approving lavish spending year after year after year.
