Geissinger Appears on Right Wing Radio to Rally "Taxpayers"
Appearing on conservative AM radio this morning, Geissinger stated he is "trying to rally the troops" and wants "support from the taxpayer". Host Bobby Gunther Walsh responds, ""You need the taxpayer to say, 'Welcome to the real world'!"
Geissinger goes on to complain that the average benefit cost per employee is $24,000 per year.
Something's wrong with that number. That translates to $58,200,000 per year in a County that only brings in about $93 million.
Geissinger acknowledges that these reductions "could" hurt some families. "Could it adversely affect some of these families?" he asks. "Yes, it absolutely could."
In the meantime, Executive Brown has scheduled a news conference on Thursday, 11 AM, at the Human Services Building, where he will release details of next year's budget.
