They don't get it

Wow.  In the middle of a budget crunch and lack of money for schools, Norfolk turns around and creates a military liaison job that pays $100K.

I am not going to argue the merits of whether or not this is a good idea.  It may be a great idea and something that the city desperately needs.  However, up until now the city has not had this position and we had been OK.  I am curious what the business case is for spending this money.  By what metric will CAPT Andrews' performance be measured?

The first thing you should do when you find yourself in a hole is to stop digging.  By the same token, the first thing you should do when you don't have enough money to pay the bills is to stop racking up additional charges.     

You can't complain about not having money for schools on the one hand and then turn around and make up city jobs on the other. 

This isn't rocket science people.  It's plain common sense.
