Our county judge was quoted recently as saying:
“Are you willing to raise taxes a little bit to help support our needs?”
This is the second recent incident where one of our elected officials used words that are telling.
One of our city representatives told us that she “begged” our new congressman to do something.
I don’t think that we should have to beg government for anything.
Now we hear the county judge begging for her “needs”. Personally, I think she needs to respect the taxpayers and minimize taxes.
This year the county approved $152 million for bonds to finance remodeling parts of the county hospital and building three new clinics. The hospital CEO told us that the clinics would save $17 million dollars each year in emergency room costs.
Will the hospital budget go down $17 million dollars when the clinics are built? I doubt it, the county judge has “needs”.
We deserve better
