  • Council Update

    Four years ago, I ran for public office out of concern for the fiscal condition of the county. The economy was weak, county revenues were down and we faced structural deficits.
    Today, county revenues are back to 2008 levels in constant dollar terms. Our employee head count is lower than in 2008. Salaries today have kept up with cost-of-living increases. The operating budget structural deficit has been largely closed, and the budget is now providing funding for the county’s $1.2 billion unfunded retiree health insurance benefits.
    The “nominal” $2 billion-plus infrastructure backlog (half of which is school construction) remains. It excludes the fee-financed,...

  • The War On Cancer Continues

    Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease. In the United States, cancer accounts for one of every four deaths. Many factors contribute to our limited success in fighting cancer. Late diagnosis, often after the cancer has already spread to distant locations, is certainly a reason many patients are incurable. Equally problematic are the limitations of our current therapeutic armamentarium. The emergence of effective chemotherapy is one of the major medical advances in the last couple of decades. Chemotherapy can potentially offer a cure in some cancers, and in others, it can offer lengthened survival of worthwhile quality.
