10% cut over all departments

Fire all Police, Teachers and Firemen, only allow non union replacements that contribute 75% to health plans and 100% to their own retirement funds.

Tax decrease, sales tax decrease, companies fight to move to Utica, Mid 20's population explodes, city extends population over 100k.

Roefaro would never allow it.

although union contracts can be hard to stomach with any budget, if you boil down to the bare minimum of what any government should provide I believe it's the following. Public safety (fire&police), education, pickup the trash and deliver utlilities such as water. Anything beyond that should be on the chopping block.

I will become mayor with a tenth grade education and lead us to a "surplus".
