I have five amazing grandchildren. Wasteful & excessive spending of our county, state and federal governments is being planned, which will greatly impact their lives.

The governmental debt will continue to grow. Until this massive debt starts to affect today’s average voter, to the point where they can no longer afford the basics of life, nothing will be done about it. If we wait for this Giant Dinosaur to breaks wind, unfortunately it will probably be too late. And don't kid yourself - we're in trouble now.

I would compare our leaders to tanked-up sailors, Eat, drink and be merry. I can only spend what I have; the same should be for our governments. When the government bellies up to the bar, they treat everyone to a barrel of wasteful & excessive spending. Eat, drink and be merry. They say, don’t worry we’ll pay for it later. And if they keep flirting with spending, we need to kick them in “you know where” and then REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER, WHEN IN DOUBT VOTE THEM OUT.

Anyway, sorry for the rant, I don't want to ruin your day, but speak up now; it is your children and grandchildren’s future. Don’t let it fall on deaf ears.

I see lots and lots of posts saying we need to replace our legislators, but that will not happen if nobody runs against them! Now is the time for all of the county residents not happy with how things are going, to get out there and encourage people that you think would do a better job to run against them in this year's election. It is my understanding that they are all up for reelection this year, and time to announce a candidacy is running short. If you really want change, you need to work at it.
