As we prepare for the impending deficit and budget talks, let’s not forget about Harvey, or Irma or whatever storm occurs on our shores. “We the People”, need to help our Congressional representatives and our State and local governments to focus on our cities Infrastructure and “critical infrastructure and in house IT needs”.

We don’t need tax cuts for Corporations or the already wealthy, we need real jobs to make our cities and rural areas thriving centers of culture and productivity.
