I’m reprinting the following story from yesterday’s Lake Arrowhead Mountain News for several reasons. First, our favorite spin master denied our previous reports that the budget deficit is higher than $90 million. We have been hearing rumors that San Bernardino County Administrative Officer Greg Devereaux has been saying behind the scenes that our information is correct, but the county is denying the same to newspaper reporters and the public. Now, we have some proof, although he is not admitting just how bad it really is.
Second, someone pointed this article out to me for a completely different reason. If you read the article, it says that the county wants employees to postpone their raises INDEFINITELY. That is not what the union is telling us.
