Lake County Council members David Hamm, Ted Bilski, Jerome Prince and Elsie Franklin have voted to institute a county income tax. Thomas McDermott is pulling their strings to approve it.

All this is about is trying to come up with more money to spend on nepotism, favoritism and stupidity. There is no rational or sensible reason to impose a county income tax. Just eliminate all wasteful spending.
