I am baffled that our town is in debt when only a few years ago we had a $3 million surplus. Now we are $5 million in debt.
A few years ago, I was proud of our City Council for its ability to manage money so well when the rest of the nation was in financial crisis. Apparently, we were fooled, or somebody didn't do the math right.
Now we are having a special election Tuesday to raise taxes, but that is not the answer. I, along with the majority of California residents, just voted to increase state taxes.
