2009 Good Riddance!

Besides the fact that Governor Moose Drool didn’t get elected VP, politically 2009 sucked. Bush and his ilk tanked the economy and left Obama two failing wars and mountains of debt. And it didn’t get much better locally, the City council voted 5-4 to raise retail taxes in one of the worst recessions in 60 years, sales tax receipts are down -4.1% from 2008 and the city will be $320 million in debt once Munson leaves office (He accumulated $230 million in debt while in office with $100 million of that going towards ‘quality of life’ projects).

2010 will be better
