Judges want more money from Mahoning County



Published: Wed, April 8, 2009 @ 1:31 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Mahoning County’s five general division common pleas judges have signed an order demanding that their 2009 budget be set at $2.4 million.

The county commissioners this year actually allocated $2.1 million.

Actual court expenditures in 2008 were $2,352,520.

“Rather than evaluating the budget submitted by this court, the commissioners simply chose to reduce each line item by 10 percent, with no explanation for that adjustment,” the order says. “The court is in the best position to determine what amount of money is necessary to effectively discharge our duty under the Constitution.”

It's time the judges learn to budget and save like those of us in the real world.
Wouldn't it be great if all the GM employees could go to GM and tell them they need $x0,000 this year regardless of the state of GM's affairs because after all, who better to tell GM what they need to live on than the people themselves?
Get real judges! Everybody in the country is making sacrifices, what makes you higher and mightier than the rest of us?

Here is a few good questions for the Judges ? When was the last time you Five wise people have taken a pay cut , to help reduce the budget ? When was the last time you Judges decided to give the taxpayers a break on the amount of money you need to operate your courts ? Do you run your personal finances the same way you operate the courts and taxpayers money ? I think you are getting way to money now , and 10 percent cut is way to small , it should be in the 25-30 percent if not more . try turning down the heat in the winter , and the air in the summer !!!!! You should be glad i am not a commissioner you would get far less and deal with it !!!! You state it is due you under the Constitution , well it also states that the people are not to be subjected to an unnecessary
taxation placed upon them by Government !!!
