      I do not want to try to be city that does not have garbage pickup or snow removal or waste water treatment.

      But I just wanted to emphasize that this riches across the spectrum. The city hire engineers and lawyers and secretaries and clerks. The local university professors have their retirement with the teacher's retirement fund. This can affect many people across a wide spectrum, not just the ones that we think of when we think "city employee."

      I also wondered how it would impact the retirement of state employees ... but it was wishful thinking that it would do anything to the retirement of politicians.
