This is to all the letter writers concerning the Gov. Mark Sanford’s budget cutting proposal. Relax, Little Red Hen, the sky is not falling.
The governor’s proposal is just that – a proposed way to cut the budget. Unfortunately this proposal included closing the University of South Carolina at Lancaster and some others that should not be closed.
The governor did not do all of this on his own. It was a proposal drafted by some adviser as a means to cut the budget, which must be done, and unfortunately the governor did not delete that part of the draft.
