Moving from Lake County will reduce income taxes

Lake County imposes an income tax and all the parasites come out, not to balance their budgets, but for raises!

It is really sad that the people spoke and the hypocrite politicians ignored the people who opposed the income tax. They should all be removed from office for not doing the will of the people. Sad thing is, the ignorant voters will probably vote them back in.

The county said if it didn’t get the money, it would shut down. It looks like now they have a windfall surplus of cash. Shouldn't they get in the black before they start spending? They are spending the money before it is even collected.

If Lake County doesn’t repeal the income tax, I have already started looking to move to another county. I suggest everyone else do the same.

When Lake County has no one to tax, they will wither and die on the vine.
