A short update this week

I am a little tired and cranky. I found out last week that I am losing my job at the end of March. No tears; I already have a couple of good leads (though if anyone wants to pass anything my way, let me know). But then my laptop drive crashed while editing my résumé and it looks like it’s gone for good. Again, no tears; the data is all safe, but I can’t get to it right now, which is irritating.

Last week’s Association of Portsmouth Taxpayers meeting was great. There was good energy, and an awareness that some recent developments—like the state budget—will make a zero budget increase this year more difficult, increasing the support for a spending cap. A group of concerned parents were present who are interested in working with APT to address the city’s budget priorities as they affect the schools. The fire chief was also there, so the spending cap is on the radar of the Powers That Be.

Next Monday is another City Council meeting; stay tuned for an update from that.
