$6 million surplus and ironically, on region section front page, prosing a .5% sales tax increase and increase in bed tax. Is this the best we can do? Not no, but heck no! Edwards has managed to screw up doing the budget his entire 8 years being off in one direction or another. And what did the republican wanna be county exe say in either article? Not a dang thing! Guess he wants to drain your checkbook as bad as Edwards has the last 8 years and if ya need proof, look no further than your county tax bills from 2005 thru 2012.

Hey rukiddingme, you really should backtrack and see who made the fiscal cuts to begin with! It sure wasn't the county employees, but their leader. His leadership has kept the county government standing, and if Thomas was still here, there is absolutely no way we would be in the black.

Got to love this area. When something goes wrong it is the leaders fault, when it goes well it is always everyone else. rukiddingme, next you're going to tell me Santa does nothing, it's the elves that make Christmas so magical. Oh wait someone might find fault with the use of Christmas in this forum.

Really? The credit should go to the Chautauqua County employees. County Executive Edwards has claimed doom and gloom, year after year. Miraculously, year after year, some kind of surplus money has magically appeared. A little fishy? Hats off to the efficient employees of Chautauqua County.

Wow, Where is the peanut Gallery this morning. A surplus and something done well by our county exec. and no one has commented yet. You must all be getting ready for the Chief justice's visit to the city to ask some great questions of the chief justice.
