Reduce the County Budget

The Monmouth County Board of Freeholders will vote on next year's budget on Thursday night. The proposed budget increases the tax levy by $8.1 million.

The Republican Freeholders should take the advice of the Citizens Budget Review Committee and reduce the overall budget.

While the proposed increase may be modest, taxpayers have had enough and are in an angry mood. A modest decrease is warranted. A decrease would be good policy and good politics.
