Somehow I think the jury is going to play "follow the leader" and go with the staff report.

We need to fix this city's finances and that includes in the short term 1) A fair tax levy for all 2) Better use of tax dollars and 3) Making investments that will save money and spur growth in the long run.

For example: LRT, at least on the East-West corridor is likely to not need operating subsidies (based on the very low subsidies for the routes it is replacing large parts of, increased ridership, and decreased per passenger operating costs). As well it will stimulate development (don't ask me HOW but the data does not lie).

What i'd like to see less of is things like tearing up a road twice in rapid succession when it only should have been done once, and other un-frugal uses of tax dollars.
