I recently attended a private lunch where Lenny Curry was the guest speaker. He spoke a lot like ANY OTHER POLITICIAN--he is very qualified, he cares, he will try not to raise taxes, he is for public safety and education, he is for economic development, etc. etc. Isn't that what all candidates for any office say?
After his remarks during the question and answer section one of the attendees asked him: If elected Mayor, where would you do some cutting in the City budget? Lenny's answer: I DO NOT KNOW. THE BUDGET IS HARD TO UNDERSTAND. I AM NOT MAYOR YET. ONCE I GET ELECTED I WILL FIGURE THINGS OUT. People, Lenny is supposed to be a CPA and he has not made the time to learn about the budget from the Chairman of the City Council Finance Committee. This reminds me of Pelosi who said you have to pass the bill to know what is in it. Lenny says, "ELECT ME FIRST AND THEN I WILL TELL YOU WHERE I PLAN TO CUT".
LENNY, UNLESS YOU GET EDUCATED FAST, YOU WILL LOSE THE ELECTION.
