Bureaucrats for a Safe Job

A group calling themselves "Citizens for a Safe Wyoming" is going to ask the county clerk for a recount of the failed revenue enhancement millage that failed last week. No doubt the group is comprised of those being laid off due to the budget cuts.

Not only can't they let the reality of the citizenry's vote stand - now they are going to cost the taxpayers even more money by asking for a recount, which will cost about $1000.

While we do feel bad for the Police and Fire Fighters that are going to be laid off, perhaps the blame is misplaced. It isn't the citizenry who they should be angry at. After all, they voted in favor of more money for the Fire Department. Maybe they should focus their blame at the city bureaucrats who can't seem to run government with any level of efficiency.
