The Lake County Council wants to enact an income tax on every working resident to give us property tax relief. And even more outlandish than that, the politicians in north Lake County are pushing the new tax the hardest, even though their residents will receive the least property tax relief.
Perhaps our county government’s shortfall of cash can be attributed to the many lawsuits against inept and thieving government officials. Try looking up the $7 million lawsuit against the Lake County Jail handlers or the amount of money wasted by the Lake County Solid Waste Management District over the past 20 years.
Follow up by researching the more than 60 Lake County politicians (all Democrats, by the way) who have been accused, convicted, or sent to prison for misuse of public funds. Trusting Lake County officials with our money is like hiring Lindsay Lohan to be a probation officer.
