Ijust got back from a Realtor meeting where the Govenor's Commerce Secretary gave an overview of the Govenor's plan for 2009 for the State. His initiatives were outlined, and his strategy was reviewed. All in all, it is an opportunity for the fundamentals of the State Government to be redefined. It is a time where big problems require big thinking and doing the same old, same old, is just not going to work. Budgets have to be slashed and spending has to be reduced. The State faces huge deficits with the economy wallowing in a recession. Everyone has to be prepared to make sacrifices, because it is inevitable. Yes, things are tough, but they are not insurmountable.
