I believe it is the primary responsibility of every individual to live within their means or budget.
As County Executive I will strive to enforce fiscal responsibility within every department and division of the County. There are established protocols and procedures for the development and implementation of budgets within each element of our County government, all are submitted to the County Budget Committee for use in producing a working document known as the County Budget. This document is the result of a comprehensive and collaborative effort from all levels of the County at prioritizing the primary needs of the County and if available the expenditures of funds to extraneous expenses, while providing for reserves necessary for events of unexpected occurrence.
If the responsible individual, either employed or elected, is unable or unwilling to work with or simply attempt to comply with the legally adopted County Budget, then that person should go home.
