EDITORIAL: County leaders must declare 'pension crisis' - Opinion - fresnobee.com
"Not surprisingly, Fresno County's pension obligations have skyrocketed, while county leaders have done little to contain the cost.
The Bee just reported that the annual retirement contribution will increase 30% to $180 million on July 1.
This only adds to the county's budget crisis.
The Board of Supervisors didn't make plans for the added costs, even though it was known they'd be increasing."
There has been a belief by the voters that our elected officials have the best interests of entire population of their county in mind.
And they are using generally good judgement.
This simply isn't true any more.
Especially in Muskegon County.
