I think we need to see a breakdown of the Secretary of State's budget. First, it's unclear how closing the archives to the public can save $700,000-plus a year. Are the few full-time employees -- security and janitorial staff -- making that much money? Second, no one has asked or explained why Secretary Kemp is so adamant that the entire 3 percent must come from the operation of the archives rather than from more incremental cuts across the breadth of his department. Even now that the governor has said the facility will remain open, Kemp insists that he can't cut his budget any other way. Maybe taxpayers who fund his budget can offer some suggestions.
