John Warren's comments are well taken. Thoughtful, with his finger on the pulse of those who really feel the effect of this recession. Citizens who cannot afford college, are they doomed to work in the fast food industry, or Wal Mart? Where are the clerical, manufacturer, etc. jobs After low wage earners pay for necessities, there is nothing left, to shop at retail stores & (pay a higer sales tax), if implemented. Housing value may have increased, but who can buy the home? All I see are Short Sells, and REO's. For me, that does not denote consumer confidence. As for the jobs that may come from the building of a new City Hall (whose construction budget has already been lowered), & library, once completed, where do the workers go next?
