What we find interesting (which no one would know unless you examine the budget) is: there was a 5.2% increase in the budget from 2011 to 2012. The monetary difference was $17,523,300.00. That's seventeen million plus!
Even if the "Three Amigos" want to blame the difference on Gracedale, they can't! Using John Stoffa's approved numbers in the budget (we have recently seen his numbers don't add up). The Gracedale contribution was a few beans above 7 million (because of a $3,683,671.00 increase). Well, wait a minute! What caused such a extreme increase from one year to the next? Hmmm! Poor leadership starting at the top? Yes, of course!
That's not all folks. The shocker is: that still leaves a difference of a few beans over 10 million unaccounted for. The ten million dollar question is: What cost 10 million over the budget? They can't blame an additional ten million on Gracedale! Show us the money trail John!
|I want my cut!|
If you listen to the three amigos, Gracedale, a taxpayer desired service, is blamed as a grand culprit in a $350 million budget. However, at 2% of the budget it is but a drop in the bucket.
And folks, if we listen to Chris Miller (forth amigo); we would dump (his words, not ours) Gracedale. So we can spend hundreds of millions on some project he endorses. Really!!! We The People, you remember us Chris, the taxpayers. We don't think so!
