Monday was MLK Jr. Day in remembrance of a man who fought ceaselessly and with grace against the idea that some people were “more equal” than others.
So this post is a day late. And as a Rockland County taxpayer, you just helped pay the $2,000,000 per day cost of County government.
I harped on the County last week because County government is vital in concept but has proven itself unable to manage its checkbook.
But one of the biggest reasons why government doesn’t get good information is because we, the People, aren’t always informed enough to shout the right information. Good information is necessary for good decisions.
