From a comment yesterday written by Martha Thompson of Crystal Lake under the article, “Republicans Hike County Tax 4%.”
I am really disappointed in my Republican Party.
I am disappointed in all of you who voted to increase my property taxes.
Sitting in the audience watching all of you vote on this was like watching a car crash in slow motion.
The professionalism by some board members is insulting to me as a taxpayer.
I am paying your salaries for you to act in this manner?
None of you deserve a pension or healthcare when you cannot even represent the people with class and dignity.
I am also disappointed in Andrew Gasser.
When the levy discussion came up he never spoke, why?
Instead, after voting he simply walked out of the room.
I am thankful you voted the right way.
I just wish you were a little more vocal.
Thank you to all of you who tried and stop this.
I am glad Jack Franks will be the chairman and I hope he can work with all of you who want to give us property tax relief.
It is clear to many of us that the last two years of leadership on this board has proven to be a disorganized, dysfunctional, group of grade school kids who think they are on the playground.
