This Giorgetti project has been voted down twice by the people. Rutland, we need to get a handle on how our tax dollars are spent. Letís help Rutland grow in a positive direction by understanding and prioritizing necessary projects so we do not end up as another bankrupted city.
We, the people of Rutland, are concerned that the recreation superintendent believed he could act on his own without accountability. The city needs to dismiss this employee. Rutland City government is getting larger and out of control and headed the wrong way. Do we really know how many employees work for City Hall and their responsibilities? Do we really know how the money is spent? Do we know priority of projects and costs?
Letís make Rutland, Vermont, more prosperous for everyone.
