Wow, handing out money like candy. I wonder how much his pension will be. Glad the $10M bond did not pass.

Nice person does not mean good fit for city council.
Cathy's position regarding the outsourcing of the golf course maintenance shows her lack of ability to tackle the real problems of the city.

It would be interesting to know how may probation officers, supervisors and overhead people there are in the probation dept. 310 drops to 271 and expected to drop to 248 6/2016 and we lay off one probation officer? How many total people are in the department and what is the yearly expense? Going for 310 to 248 is a 20% drop. Are we cutting expenses 20%? I would hope so, but expect not ..

It is good to see the City districts dealing with balancing cost and expenses. I wonder if there is outsourcing opportunities like outsourcing maintenance (similar to the golf course)?
The special districts are required to support themselves which requires them to cut cost when cost are greater than revenue -- Unfortunately the city deals with cost issues by cutting services, such as road and infrastructure repair.
We need to deal with the bigger problem.

I will vote yes as soon as the firefighter pensions get a major overhaul. 3% at 50, and all kinds of spiking doesn't work for me. I suspect if the pensions get a proper overhaul the fire dept will be able to fund the new station without a bond.

Given that the cost of the public employees are approx double the outsource cost -- I think Murillo should pay anyone doing work for her personally double. Instead of $20-25/hour for work such as cleaning or gardening, pay $50. when a contractor gives you a quote to do project--go ahead and pay him double. Must be nice to be fairy godmother with other peoples money.
