Brockport Vote

If any village we know should have been dissolved, it should have been Brockport.   A long legacy of bad government.

Tonight, the residents said "No" to dissolution of the village government.

For the rest of us, the important point is to keep our eyes on the ball.   Maybe local dissolution or consolidation makes sense in certain circumstances.   But when it comes to reducing governmental costs, it's almost always a false option.   No matter what the Democrat and Chronicle says.

Even if all the savings of dissolution were realized, it's a drop in the bucket compared to the two big tax drivers:   state taxes and local school taxes.

Consolidate your butt off.   New York remains a high-tax state until the state's take and the schools' take are trimmed way back.
