Wow, those poor, poor county employees, who's jobs are safe and we all know it. I haven't had a raise in 3 years, and only receive 2 personal days per year. That is how small businesses have cut back to compensate for the tax increases and poor economy. Non governmental businesses' employees are hurting way more than any governmental employee (local, state, fed).
Our property taxes wil increase regardless of the passing of the sales tax increase.
Have these commissioners not been paying attention for the last several years. We did not get into this debt overnight. I'm sure there are items that can be cut that the public won't feel as much as possible. Talk about turning the knife once we've been stuck. I feel this is quite a bully tactic, in the words of the head bully himself.
