Last night I attended a public meeting in Eureka to discuss the California budget crisis.
More specifically, to discuss the horrendous cuts being made to individuals and services of some of our most vulnerable community members, equaling over 100 million dollars, and how they will affect people in Humboldt County.
More specifically, to be lectured to about the inevitability of these horrendous cuts and how “we’re all in this together” from someone who makes over $100,000 a year. My favorite quote:
“You see we’re not actually talking about cuts here, we’re just talking about how services will be provided differently.”
I have no comment other than a deep and heavy sigh.
