Multiple layers of government make no sense

Dennis Seekins and Jack Capurso are so right on, words fail me. I can say that this NYS policy of endless duplication of services and layers of similar government jobs is just plain idiotic.

My uncle was district superintendent in Bergen County, New Jersey for all students, all county. It amazed me when I moved here to see each tiny berg have separate government, school superintendents, highway departments, etc. No one could ever explain it to me.

At least now I can commiserate with others who see the stupidity of this, and hope springs eternal. I have to erase in my head the image of an elderly lady being interviewed regarding consolidation, saying “Medina will lose its history.”

Words truly fail me now.
