Pensions are so high because local police retire in their early 50's and draw for 35 years. Lay-off some of the trafffic cops and it would be cheaper to issue every homeowner in town a handgun for protection.

Watching meet the press this morning it made me think "Why doI have to pay for the screw up's" All kidding aside, why do we as tax payers have to keep paying for the miss management of our money by the people who are elected o run the operations? So I fiugure it coes back to us, we hired (elected) these people, so we need to fire them and get new employees. We forget and so do they that they (elected officals) work for us. Time to remind them of that. Now will come the blame game of who's fault it is not the falut of them but the States and Fed's fault. Nope not true and I for one will not buy in to that excuess and neither should anyone else. No reason to give pay raises and pay for all of the schooling when we are not getting are money back. Lets think about cutting back in City Hall, do we really need all of the people and MADE up spots. How about taking some of the jobs and like in private sector combine some of theses jobs to one or two people. I bet one person could do at least the job they do plus, and stil go home by five. Why is Gary Edwards still working? After Mr. Wright was hired Gary was to go back to a part time position. People need to look and ask questions more now then ever. Had a guy tell me last week, it's just like Washington at City Hall, people look busy and moving papers all around, but nothing gets done. How about we take some of the people and treat them like a sales person. They get a flat salary and if they bring in the "job" or save money and just go above and beyond what they need to do then they can have a bouns at the end of the year. Just like in the real world now they would have a real reason to WORK and not just expect the weekly check as they now get. We can not fix the past, but a line needs to be drawin the sand and plan for the future while we have a small chance.

The audacity this city has to ask for more tax revenue is stunning. How many towns the size of Litchfield have funded positions for an "Economic director", "Tourism director", and a city administrator who, I have been told, is paid a 6 digit salary? Do we really need a 17 full time person police force, with at least that many police cars? Does anyone even know how many vehicles the street department has? It seems every third vehicle in town has a city municipality license plate.
This is not personal, I know and like many of the city employees. But, this is business, and from my perspective, this city is grossly over-staffed and over-budgeted. They need to take a very hard look at these postitions and their budget, and cut the fat back before they even consider asking for more revenue from a community that has not recovered from the economic malaise that has plagued this country for a decade.
One gets the impression from hearing the rhetoric from our elected representatives that they really don't understand just how strongly "we the people" feel about this. That needs to change. Make your voices be heard!!!!
