Psychosocial Dancing in Arlington
There are "core government functions" for which few taxpayers question the need to spend taxpayer money. For example, the police and fire departments immediately come to mind, but you know that Arlington taxpayers provide county government with far too much money when the County Manager proposes spending $9,483 for "dance and movement workshops" for county residents "with mobility and sensory-based disabilities to increase their physical and psychosocial health and recreational opportunities." This is a new program to suck-up taxpayers hard-earned money. You can find the complete details in "Tab M" of the Manager's proposed budget for FY2005.
