Common Council Readies for Charade of "Running Things Like a Business"
As the Council works through the budget, it’s a perfect opportunity to assess the Council’s stated objective of “protecting taxpayers” and “running things like a business” versus its decisions and actions.
If this article is any indication, it will be a charade of epic proportions. ( Council plans budget workshops, talks ambulance service)
Because what business ever cares about revenue when you can just cut and slash? Or, even better, use the budget for political retribution against Corp Counsel?
So the Council’s first lesson in Management 101 is: ignore revenue opportunities, focus on cost savings, and favor politics over governance.
