We want your opinions

ISSUE:

Tension between County Executive David R. Craig and the County Council escalated this past week as they battled over Craig's proposal to upgrade several county positions. Craig said the changes are necessary to enable the government to keep up with the needs of a growing county. But the council nixed the plan, with some saying it would bloat the executive ranks with little benefit to taxpayers.

Tomorrow, the council takes up deliberation of Craig's proposed budget for the coming fiscal year, and some members have complained about some of the spending it seeks.
