Congratulation Berkley!!! Informed voters, making informed decissions and then making smart decissions.

When will our city leaders learn that in an economy where many of us are struggling to make ends meet, that's not the time to raise taxes. Aside from "if" these things are actually "needed", while we may save some money by doing these things now, we can't afford them.

If you buy something priced at $120, but have can save $20, didn't you still have to pay $100? If you don't have the $100, the economy is in the tank, you're in fear of losing your job, and your house has lost 30%+ of it's value, saving $20 doesn't mean a thing. To think otherwise is a major reason why we're in this economic mess.

Berkley City leaders better smarten up or they won't be our leaders for long.
