It seems a bit late to try to deliberate past budget blunders. Why does it take major financial meltdown of county funds to get to this? Is there ever a true thought process on how tax money should be spent before investigations have begun.?There was little if any checks and balances ever instilled. Wasn't failed pinnacle racetrack enough to get thought process going in lack of expertise of how a few people wasted millions of dollars in a venture that was doomed before it was conceived? I'm sure there r people with better credentials who could fill these publicly funded positions that could have done a far greater job than what has transpired in wayne county michigan.
