Photo by Mary Jean Wilson by Mary Jean Wilson Senator Alan Simpson was in a mellow mood when he addressed the audience at his Town Meeting In Sundance on Wednesday, May 29. He opened with a number of remarks about those he had known over the years in this area, many of whom he worked with in one way or another. He followed that with a discus- sion of some of the changes that have occurred in the federal bud- get during the years he has been in office. One of those changes is the increase in the proportion of the budget that is taken up by Social Flyte, Moorcroft. Filing for com- mitteewoman on the Democrat ticket were Virginia Shoffstall, Beulah; and Josephine Ann Flyte, Moorcroft. Security and Medicare and other entitlement programs. He used charts to depict the several changes. Simpson also discussed the work that is being carried out to try to produce a balanced budget. Some of the things he recommends in- clude increasing the retirement age, reducing or deleting the Cost of Living Allowance or COLA, and allowing individuals to set up personal investment plans for re- tirement. One area where Simpson has changed his ideas is on term lim- its. At one time he opposed them, but now he thinks they might help. In talking about the administra- tion, Simpson said that Clinton, or "Slick Willy'' as he called him, manages to take whatever the Re- publicans do or say and make it appear as if he did it thereby turn- ing it to his advantage. Simpson also noted that if people vote for Perot or Buchanan in the upcom- ing presidential election that will be a vote for Clinton. One of the questions that was asked was about the fiat tax. Simpson said that there were sev- eral kinds of flat tax that could be used, a national sales tax, a value added tax, and lotteries. These he did not favor, but said the Domenlci proposal, a progressive tax, could work. He indicated that the gas tax would be repealed. He was askedwhat achievements he was proudest of during his time in office. The things he listed In- cluded the clean air act, immigra- tion, and the super fund act. He also noted that he has at one time or another held a Town Meeting in every incorporated town in the state. After a tribute to Simpson given by Marlene Simons for his work in the Senate, Simpson spent a few minutes reminiscing about his years in Congress and about some of the trips he made with his field representative. Robin Bailey. He recommended that hls successor keep her on, Genevieve Redflcid retired last Friday after 11 years and 7 days as a City of Sundance em- ployee. Monday night during the council's regu- lar meeting she was honored for her years of service. Mayor Jim Miller is shown after presenting Genevieve with a green plant in a short ceremony at the start of the meeting. Photo by Howard Allen ii!
