Ludeman, Waniewski, and Collins on WSPD, not a new law firm

I have my copy of the budget and will share it with you Monday mornin' along with D. Michael Collins and his thoughts. It's not pretty, but for the last three years we have been telling you that without serious cutbacks in items that were not necessary we would reach this point.
Add up all the flowers, shrubs, lights, showers, bike/walk paths, ESM renovations etc. etc. and you can see where we could have been saving for some time now. Enjoy.
