Northampton County Executive John Stoffa will release his budget this Friday ... I think. He's invited me to a news conference "this coming Friday, October 1, 2011." I'm pretty sure this Friday is September 30, but Stoffa must have created a new calender again by Executive Order. This is what happens when he has no Director of Administration.
John has changed Septemeber to Stoftember, and eliminated January so we don't get so cold.
This will be no "budget of choices." He will propose a combination tax hike, as well as a partial depletion of the County's rainy day fund.
