Time for Chatham County commissioners to get off the spending bus and on the school bus

During one of the worst recessions in decades, the county should not propose a budget that significantly increases the cost of government and cuts education. We all have to prioritize between “wants” and “needs”. The Board of Commissioners should do the same. Chatham County has revenues 19% higher than 2002 adjusted for inflation and population growth. We have plenty of revenue, the county needs to control it’s spending.
