Life in "progress" City - Camden edition

From the city of Camden NJ, where there hasn't been a republican in city government since Thag invented the wheel..............

Camden City Council, as expected, voted Thursday to lay off almost 400 workers, half of them police officers and firefighters, to bridge a $26.5 million deficit.

That’s about a quarter of the city’s entire work force.

Five members of City Council voted unanimously to approve the layoff plan — two other members were absent. The cuts take effect in mid-January.

Exactly how many city workers will be affected is still an open question, although nearly half the city’s police and a third of the firefighters are slated to go.

Making the nation's most dangerous city even more dangerous?

Now that's "progressive"!
