Fiscal restraint

Sunday, December 9th, 2012 @ 10:51PM

Our city government needs to exercise fiscal restraint, and control its spending.

  • Staff: Always consult the city budget and accountant before making any fiscal decisions.
  • Balanced Budget: Establish and remain resolute in preserving a balanced budget without compromising Irvine’s long-term economic goals.
  • Tax Breaks: Break down the budget and cut out the fat. Unnecessary expenditures are a discredit to taxpayers. These wasted funds should remain in their wallets.
  • Review Contract Process: Review vendor contracts semi-annually. Establishing yearly contracts will provide multiple companies the opportunity to bid, providing the best price, quality and job.
  • Pensions: Review and revise the city’s pension plan.

The negligence and poor decisions of this council, a council my opponents have been apart of for over two decades, have allowed for our current city council to dip into our rainy day fund. A fund that I believe is best untouched unless under dire need. Short-term decisions with no vision lead to long-term economic disaster. As mayor, I intend to use my executive experience and prevent these issues from continuing by keeping focus on efficient spending and planning.

Hi there, I do believe your website could possibly be having internet
browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in IE, it has some overlapping
issues. I just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
Other than that, fantastic website!
