In response to a recent News-Dispatch article about the city budget shortfalls, I felt the need to write this to inform the public and be a voice of reason from the City Council.

There’s been inflammatory rhetoric stating, in my opinion, the city is in financial ruin. I agree we can always look for ways to be more efficient with city finances, but I feel this can be fixed with a few changes to some procedures. No, this is not a great situation, but these issues can and will be be fixed moving forward.
