County Legislators

Instead of just cutting the mailings, which is a great idea, why don't we cut the number of legislators in half. We will save on the salaries of the legislators and their back up staff, the space they use, maintenance, county cars, etc. and in doing so we may even slow down the opportunities they always find for new ways of taxing us.
