State Senator Colin Bonini is highlighting problems with Delaware’s budget on the website Delaware’s Bad Habit. The website states:
Delaware is a small state with a huge appetite for tax dollars. It shouldn’t surprise us that our State Government is now facing a several hundred million dollar shortfall – we’ve spent ourselves into it. The First State is consistently one of, if not the, most expensive State Governments per person in the entire country. Our budget, along with other non-budget expenditures, totals over $8 Billion dollars a year. $8 Billion! That’s over $9,700 for every Delaware resident!
We can do something about all of this wasteful spending, but we need to act. The first step in breaking a bad habit is to admit you have one. Our politicians won’t acknowledge the problem until they hear of it from the people. Thus this website and our state-wide education effort to get the word out.
Senator Bonini is making himself available for presentations. Also, visitors to the site can review his PowerPoint presentation.
