Seems like it would be a pretty simple concept that if government services are decreased there would be a corresponding decrease in government expenses - yet Oregon government was compelled to raise $800 million in new taxes. The second largest Oregon State government expense is the Department of Human Services. Seems that decreasing this department by 20-30% this would produce a corresponding decrease in DHS staffing. Was there?  No.

Why can't social services be shifted back to the communities where is is best monitored and assessed? In Molalla we had a "Community Summit" to develop a strategy for collaborating and inventorying services provided by 501c(3), volunteer, faith-based, school and government organizations. The City of Molalla subsequently re-established Communities That Care as a vehicle for assisting community organizations to provide their services.

It's not a comprehensive answer to the need to cut government expenses by shifting social services to communities, but it's a start to addressing Housing, Healthcare, Transportation, Employment, and Family Skills needs at the community level.

About Me I am right where God wants me to be at this particular time. When He reveals my next task to serve Him I will do it to the best of my ability. I have done some good things in my life and I have made some mistakes. My greatest challenge today, is in not making the same mistakes and avoiding new ones by being the kind of man, husband, father, son, brother, friend, etc., that I would like to have.
