guess he gets that adjustment for longevity since he keeps getting re-elected. Maybe he should get a job as a salesman. If he can fool all those people into voting for him he could sell just about anything.
Hey JC thats what the extra $200 a month is for. dont use that as a lame excuse to bilk more money from the taxpayers. For once be a stand up guy and refuse the raise. Maybe you dont know the meaning of that phrase.
I read in another paper where Ole JC was keeping his raise while most everyone else was either giving it back to the county or to charity. JC says he doesnt have a full time job like the others. Guess it is kinda hard to get a job with a conviction on your record isnt it? Guess this shouldnt surprise anybody since JC is only out for himself and not for his taxpaying community. Way to go JC, good decision!!
Sure, why not give themselves a raise? Afterall they just raised property taxes because they wanted to maintain service at the same level as last year and the budget was falling short. How soon they forget!
I think more the question should be if and when the housing market improves and values increase will they then reduce property taxes?
I hope an awful lot of people read this and absorb what is said. I couldnt agree with Mr Sowell more. This has been more a political lynching than a judicial trial.
I guess the BOC believes you CAN get blood out of a turnip. What you going to do when the taxpayers can afford to pay their property and school taxes? It called living within your income. As an old saying goes When your output exceeds your income, your upkeep will be your downfall.
An "omission" for several years on TWO businesses and he is part of city government? How many other things has he "ommited"?
to give you a short answer..because she can. Seems like she has let her "high on the hog" lifestyle outrun her salary and she needs those funds to keep up. But like most politicians she says what she needs to keep her job.
I too am against the user fee for the recycling centers. We already pay taxes to run these centers and now the BOC wants us to PAY A FEE to use them? This is nothing more than double taxation. All members of the BOC need to remember the promises you made during your campaigns. There is nothing I hate more its a person that talks out of both sides of their mouth. If you said it to get elected you better follow through or you will have a short political career.
