Lexington budget vetoes stand, let's keep moving

The Lexington city council decided not to override Mayor Jim Gray's line item vetoes that helped to curb wasteful spending in Lexington. Read the Herald-Leader's report here.

We wrote quite a bit about this and applauded the mayor for fighting for spending cuts BUT this should be viewed as just the first step. There are many other financial issues that must be tackled so that Lexington can get on solid footing for the future. Public pension reform, privatizing city owned golf courses, etc... The list goes on and on...

I encourage all Lexingtonians to contact their council member and urge them to not rest now, to keep fighting for reductions in wasteful spending!
