2017 Letters to the editor stock

So Lake County Councilwoman Christine Cid, a Democrat, got $175,000 earmarked at the last minute for government employee paternity leave.

How noble of her.

It must be nice to spend other people's money on feel-good causes. How many taxpayers will foot the bill for paternity leave, yet another expenditure these politicians vote into law ?

The $25 per vehicle charge, the Lake County tax, Crown Point's property tax increase (it was for the children of course) — I even see a charge on my property tax bill for the new library Crown Point built.

It never ends, but it does add up.

Cliff Reed, Cedar Lake
