City thriving under current government

first_imgFirst of all, many of us Saratoga Springs residents think the city is doing pretty well, especially when we measure it against our neighboring cities and the rest of upstate New York, which is collapsing. Secondly, the charter changers haven’t defined any goals or a vision for how our city should ultimately look and perform. They also haven’t provided any rationale why Saratoga Springs residents will be better off under a city manager.They pretty much offer us only a mundane path that follows the legions of New York’s failing cities that already have their proposed layer on layer of bureaucracy.Ultimately, charter change places a terrible burden on the average citizen with the danger of failure and the certainty of increased government and taxes.Of course, I’m going to vote no and ask you to also vote no.Gregory WrobelSaratoga Springs Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinioncenter_img More from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censuslast_img
