Fired Up

Curious as to why you think the Convention Center has any effect on the city's budget? If you're a city employee then you should know that all money to build and to operate the convention center comes straight from Room Occupancy Taxes, and that's the only thing that money can be used for. Plus it's putting people to work. I'm also wondering what you mean when you say that your benefits are being taken away? From what I read in the budget, city workers health care went up only slightly, and the city decreased their contribution to employees' 401K by 2% for just one year. I know many state and county employees who would not mind that.
