Dear Delaware County Commissioner Stapleton:

You’ve certainly got a lot of nerve. Calling out “Delaware County taxpayers” to participate in the Ohio tax amnesty program is both stupid on your part and insulting. RE: Your Letter to the Editor Delaware Gazette on Tuesday, May 29th.

If someone is actually a “Delaware County taxpayer” then their taxes are paid and this Ohio tax amnesty program has no value or interest to them. Perhaps, you should call on Delaware County Tax Deadbeats to step up and pay their tax obligations… whatever they are. Generally, people who actually pay are payers while deadbeats ignore their bills and financial obligations and the payers end up picking up the tab for the deadbeats.

Your insult is that the government would excuse Tax Deadbeats and forego penalties and some interest charges. As a person who pays my taxes that angers and insults me since I chose to forego spending money on things I wanted to buy in order to fully pay my tax obligations when they were due. I got no break for paying up, in full, and on time so why should tax deadbeats who don’t pay get special treatment?

Perhaps you are unaware of the tax delinquency status of Delaware County when it comes to payroll taxes. Or the fact that Republican officeholders are frequently tax deadbeats.

Ohio Auditor Dave Yost had a judgment for unpaid Ohio income taxes filed against him in Delaware Common Pleas Court when he was serving as Delaware County Auditor.

Clerk of Courts Antonoplos has more than $300,000 in federal tax liens for unpaid income taxes filed against her (recorded in the Delaware County Recorder’s office).

State Representative Andrew Brenner, the president of Prestige Music Studios in Powell, has federal tax liens for more than $70,000 unpaid payroll taxes against that company recorded in the Delaware County Recorder’s office.

There’s no need for you to chastise and insult the taxpayers who pay their taxes by rubbing your tax amnesty deal for deadbeats in our faces. Go to a Delaware Republican Party meeting with your concerns over unpaid taxes. It looks like there’s almost a half a million dollars owed by your fellow Republican officeholders. And, why don’t your lazy bureaucrats make an effort to collect taxes other than giving deadbeats a free-ride at the taxpayers’ expense.

Stapleton wishes he were back in the statehouse rather than sitting in the Commissioner's seat. It is obvious he is just biding time until he can run again for a state office. If he really wanted to make an impact on delinquent tax payments he would call for Delaware County clerk of Courts Jan Antonopolus to step down as well as any other public official who owes any government entity back taxes. An example should be made in Delaware County. The question is is Dennis Stapleton man enough to do something about it????
Not all of them

I don't think the question is he man enough, rather does he want to commit political suicide by pissing off Yost, Tiberi and the rest of the goon squad.

Stapleton does not insult corporations who want to come to Delaware County and we lose them until the others make peace because of Ken O'Brien. What is important here? This is the other side of the coin that no one talks about. Kenny pulls too many goofs and does not really embrace what the county wants. He is so afraid of losing votes that he does not vote for the GOOD of all. Sorry he has others pulling his strings. I don't think he has ever had an original thought.

I agree. Ken does not really want to have new business. He just wants to make Gus Comstock look bad!
