Report by Richard Geno
The Conservative Forum continues to grow in members, and in attendance. 240 enthusiastic conservatives showed up to hear two very diverse presentations on July 13th.
First was our conservative San Jose city councilman, Pete Constant. Pete discussed the problems of dealing with an ongoing budget crisis, and the attitude of council members that cause the problem.
Pete started our by indicating that every government body - local, state and national - is dealing with budget crises that stem from too much government spending. In San Jose, the most recent fiscal problems represent the ninth consecutive year of budget deficits. The city has fourteen different unions to deal with. Some of the unions, and some of the city council members are in denial about the problem.
