Recently the Lexington Herald-Leader reported that Lexington Vice Mayor Jim Gray called for a halt to the plans to build a new government center for the city. His reasoning is that during these tough economic times, it is unwise to begin a construction project of that magnitude.
“…no business would initiate this kind of undertaking in today’s economy“
Yes! That’s right! Finally, an elected official makes a policy decision based on fiscally responsible ideas. The public sector must be as efficient (if not more) with the taxpayers’ money than a private business is with its own resources.
We need more of this attitude!
