Roger Schmidt: X out Measure X

November 2, 2013 

Modesto needs to be held responsible for its spending. I find it amazing that California has the highest taxes in the nation but has the most cities in bad financial shape and they want more. More taxes will not cure liberals’ sickness of spending. I can assure you that each year at the end of the fiscal year, spending in most departments in Modesto was under the budget, but they wasted it to get their annual increase in budget spending for the next year of 3 to 5 percent.
