We live in a period when our Federal, State and local governments are spending more than they take in.  Placer County is a conservative area and surely our government officials are not over spending, right?  Wrong.

Placer County’s budget is out of balance so what do our Supervisors do but hand out pay raises (and this is not an isolated incident, but rather routine). 

I fully understand the need to retain and reward good employees, but if there is no money there is no money… and the County has no money. 

The Board of Supervisors tried to sneak this pay raise through on the “Consent Agenda” but alleged liberal Jennifer Montgomery objected.  Alleged conservative supervisors voted to go further into debt and give the pay raise…reminiscent of the 2006 Congressional Republicans.
