How is it that our elected officials want to give county employees raises funded by a tax increase on the backs of county residents, many of who are currently unemployed, under employed or retired and living on fixed incomes? This is not responsible governing and those who voted for this should be reminded of their vote during the next election cycle and rewarded with defeat at the polls. As far as Fritz and Wells voting to appoint themselves to the appraisal board it should be illegal for an elected official to appoint themselves to another position such as this.
