State finally starts slashing spending. I’d say too little, too late, but we have to start somewhere. Since the imposition of Lowell Weicker’s income tax, we’ve doubled the state payroll and quadrupled (after inflation) our spending. As they say, when something can’t keep going, it won’t. And now we’re seeing that happen.
Next step.on the local level: let’s kill the high school auditorium project. If we can no longer count on return of stolen money from Hartford, and we can’t, then this $30 million boondoggle is all ours. Let’s not do it.
