Newington about to approve monstrous budget

Spending and not having all the money.   Raises when we are in direr straits with our budget.   And we knew it was coming and still like it wasn’t.   This in all departments.  Increase for many residents could reach $400+.  No slush fund this year, all spent to make councilors look good.  Now when we really could use it, gone.  Everyone wants major expenditures.  Wrong year folks.  Do the hard thing and reduce spending dramatically  No matter what it is.  Bite the bullet.  Newington residents need to accept reduced services for now.  We can do it.
