They talk about the rise of cost in products but don't mention the fact that Sales Tax is based on a percentage. This means that when cost goes up on the product so does the amount of tax going to the county. They need to speak bluntly. If there is something that we need to get done in this county show us and we can talk. They could also send out a detailed list of where all of the money has gone and where we are coming up short showing where and why they need more money. Maybe they should have the county vote on what projects they want to get done and we can discuss the money it will take to do those projects. You can no longer expect people to hand money over blindly and think that our local politics will take care of us and do the right thing. The niave generation of baby boomers are getting further and further out of the mainstream on these issues. I know it is hard to believe but the Generation X that is coming in is not as likely to hand the politicians our money without being shown what it is for. We are willing to work on things that need fixed but we are not going to keep feeding a broken system.
