Lake County is worse than broke under Repay

How nice that Lake County Councilman/Commissioner-elect Mike Repay is leaving Lake County $15 million more in debt after his brief stint on the County Council.

It was just two years ago that Repay promised to cut the county fat and balance the county budget and avoid a county option income tax. Having failed miserably, instead he borrowed $15 million from our neighboring county, and with Lake County now being worse then broke with nothing more to spend, fled to the sanctity of the ivory tower that the County Council sits atop, doling out its jobs to friends and political allies.

Repay is surely showing he's on the rise as a typical bureaucratic Lake County politician and seems certainly more than qualified for a future in the U.S. Congress.
