The Hood's quick take on Beaufort County Commissioner's Budget Workshops

    All but one budget session will be dull. The main event will be on Thursday, May 24 at 5:00 pm. It is to "finalize the budget". That will be when changes are made. I expect this to be to award special favors to the gang's favorite people.

    If you can only attend one meeting, this is the night to be there. Although it will be filmed, all of these dates are jammed up together so the video will only be up a day or two. it was planned this way. The insiders set the dates. The board just nodded their approval of the schedule.

    Other meeting dates are:

     •  Monday, May 21st, at 5:00 pm, to finish the general fund and the enterprise funds

     •  Tuesday, May 22nd, at 5:00 pm, to do service expansion and outside agencies. Translation - increase spending above what has already been proposed, and consider donations to charities.

     •  Thursday may 24 at 5:00 pm to "finaize the budget". translation "make changes" which will increase spending.

    If you have conservative friends, who may want to receive this kind of information by email, or who may wish to attend our next Conservative meeting which will be on Thursday, June 14th at Mount Olive College, at 7:00 pm, please call me (975-3472) or email me (hrichardsonpa@embarqmail.com). I will add them to this mailing list. Conservative candidates will be invited to speak at that meeting.

    Please forward this to other interested Conservatives.
