Why would anyone ever, even jokingly, expect a city/county/state service to put shoes on his/her feet?My point exactly!We certainly do not need a mini Haliburton exec as the head of our State government.. reagan, Wilson drug us down too far already, Reagan? Wilson?California's state spending has ballooned in the last decade at a rate that is much higher than the rate of inflation and rate of population growth in the state. According to Tom Campbell, who served as California's finance director in 2004-2005, if the 1999-2000 budget of former California governor Gray Davis had been increased over the next decade by a factor representing the inflation rate and California's population growth in that time, California would now be experiencing a budget surplus, rather than a deficit even with the recent revenue decline due to the state's economic recession.http://sunshinereview.org/index.php/California_state_budgetYes, that Gray Davis, but you go ahead and blame it on the guy that served 40 years ago.Rusty
