Following the lead of Jack Johnson and betraying the voters who elected them, five members of the county council have shown their contempt for the voters by supporting tax increases prohibited by the county charter.
The will of the people, and the rule of law apparently means nothing to these five tax-hungry despots (all Democrats). They knew the provisions of the county charter and the legal options for raising taxes when they ran for office, and when they took thair oaths of office.
But, being unrwilling to abide by the law, and live up to the trust of the voters, they have now appealed to a higher authority to permit them to steal money from us in a manner not allowed under county law.
Who are these five betrayers?
Council chair, Marilynn Bland (D-9).
