The budget has been at the forefront of any public conversation about our City Council for the past 8-to-10 months. And there's been no shortage of hyperbole and shots across one group or another's bow. Just this week, newly (re-) elected Council member Bob Johnson once again set his sights on the City's Public Service Agreements. But despite all the rancor, Jason and Nick point out there really aren't many differences between this year's proposed budget from the previous year. As Jason simply put it, "Ain't nobody gettin' those raises." So is the lack of drastic change good or bad? We don't yet know. But it's worth noting the change in language and tenor now that the election cycle is over.
