If you are a Dietitian, where are your credentials? RD? RDN? CD-N?

Good question, Helana, thanks for asking! I am a Dietitian, but I am not currently registered. IRead Moreh ave undergraduate degree in Dietetics from a well-respected university and I completed my Masters degree and my dietetic internship from an Ivy League school and affiliated hospital in New York. I took my RD exam in 1997 and passed, making me a Registered Dietitian. I also completed the requirements (read: paid the bill) to become a CDN (Certififed Dietitian/Nutritionist) A number of years into having little children at home, I took a break from practicing and let my registration lapse. I am currently in the process of reinstatement so I can go back to referring to myself as a Registered Dietitian and not just "Dietitian." So while the letters after my name were dropped, the education, knowledge and experience have not left me. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to clarify this for you. Beth

While the State has many revenue sources - personal income tax, sales tax, business taxes, fuelRead Moretaxe s, utility taxes, gaming revenues, and user fees - municipalities are almost entirely limited to the property tax to raise funds to meet public service needs. Property taxes account for at least 72 percent of all municipal revenue. Chronic state underfunding of PreK-12 public education has wreaked havoc at the local level. For the last decade, municipalities have been forced to eliminate or reduce other municipal services because the rise in education costs has outpaced growth in property tax revenue. In many communities, the general-government, noneducation side of municipal government has gotten smaller over the last decade. Towns and cities have had no choice but to cut back on other municipal services and raise property taxes to pay for rising education costs. http://advocacy.ccm-ct.org/Resources.ashx?id=524d5981-e780-4b8f-bd8d-701de00ca464
