    A few comments:
    • The $120, 757 annual cost to the employer looks like an opportunity to control costs.
    • The achievement gap was mentioned several times. The county should stop all efforts to close the gap. As some readers know, very expensive programs that are designed to close the gap have failed throughout the United States. Some of these programs have actually increased the gap. The county is not going to close the gap.
    • Although not mentioned in the Proposed Budget, I assume that public funds are not being used to pay for the education of children of undocumented immigrants. If they are, this should be stopped immediately.
