I am very troubled that once again a local official (Dan Ross) seems to have gone the way of so many others. Having some peripheral knowledge of the situation , it seems he did at the least cross an ethical line. Whether or not laws were violated, remains to be seen. Certainly the reputation and credibility of our office will be compromised. It won't make my job any easier. Something smells pretty badly about this forgiving people of their taxes, and I think enough people know about it, so it isn't going to go away.
So I would ask Dan Ross to openly address the allegations, tell the truth and let what is right prevail. The information regarding the issue is public, make it so. It seems an investigation would only make matters worse. Mr. Ross get out ahead of this. Tell us what you did and why. Being tried in the press is probably not gonna go well for you, and will be damaging to our efforts in the Assessors Office Let the voters be informed and then decide.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
