    Great news! That should balance the budget deficit from last FY year, encourage highly qualified candidates to apply to be department heads at the 9 departments with “acting” leaders, find the missing take home cars, stop the increase in murders, and resolve all the discrimination claims against the administration. Does anyone find it odd you can’t actually view the website of the organization that was well paid to doe the work praised in this press release?
