Need hard looks

The supervisors are elected to set tax rates and allocate expenditures. Ms. Booker’s lament that the supervisors have short-changed county programs is specious at best. Too many people, for too long a time have confused fiscal responsibility with funding “make me feel-good” programs that are too expensive, unnecessary or no longer affordable at all. In my view, the supervisors have tried to balance what we need with what we want. No thinking person could deny that we can no longer simply fund past programs by raising taxes. We need to take hard looks at what we can fund within a responsible budget. Am I the only one who laments the loss of the Zions Crossroads business tax base that previous short-sighted Board of Supervisor members, including Ms. Booker, let slip away to Louisa County?
