I was a little irreverant in my interview today with channel 7 over the proposed City budget coming out tomorrow night...I have seen enough presentations over the years and feel I keep a good enough eye on trends throughout the year, that the power point show isn't really that much of an epiphany for me.
Obviously the proposal sets a framework for discussion...a paradigm if you will...but there are variables in terms of assumptions and in terms of how to handle things like the "healthy" fund balance.
Typically a city manager will guage the political winds as well as the fiscal situation in deciding the angle to take....Lawmakers posture in these affairs and often there are differing priorities among lawmakers between say tax relief and more spending.
So when I did my TV interview I perhaps didn't exhibit the requisite awe and trepidation for the presentation....I am sure it will be complete and well done, but my affection for the document is proportional to whether I agree with the suppositions offered....
It's that special use permit for another tattoo parlor that has me scratching my head...The reporter interviewing me today said she found my comments the other day on butt caps to be amusing....
I thought every young lady had one these days but the reporter volunteered the information that she did not.
To which I responded ,"good for you." What are you supposed to say ?
