If you want to see picky Mr. Journalism Major, I will oblige. I am only doing this because people of
In Mayor McCue’s 2010 Budget letter:
“Dear Neighbor” so this goes out to all of the residents of
The “worst recession since the great depression”, that is not a good comparison. A depression and recession are quite different.
“great depression” should have been capitalized. It is a proper name!
“Our residents are tightening their belts and stretching every dollar. Therefore, the City of
“The 2010 recommended budget is balanced” if only taxes are raised and the state doesn’t change the payment to the city. It will become a deficit budget then!
“Total general fund expenditures will be $12,814,302, which equates to a two percent tax levy increase.” This sentence structure is very poor since the comma comes after a few other commas in the amount. Bad to do since people might think numbers are missing.

“This position will pay for itself due to the increased collection of outstanding fines.” No, it will not, taxpayers will still pay for it plus that just means someone isn’t doing their job! How much will it cost? That dollar amount was left out. Omitted!
“We hope to have the recommended budget online for residents review at www.ci.cudahy.wi.us.” So we will be able to review it? Comments and such? Plus it needed the word “to” review be added.
