The following comment from WizBang might be of interest:
I’ve been reading about the recent carnival of activities at the townships.
I sometimes turn to the front page to make sure that I didn’t pick up a grocery store tabloid.
How dare the characters at the townships spout off that we need to stay away and mind our own business.
The after-hours rifling of files, outrageous legal fees, hiring of friends, family and political cronies.
Computers wiped clean along with missing hard drives.
Bonuses given to employees and family members, just because, has been too much.
I love the statements that “we need to prove the elimination of townships will save the taxpayers money.”
Here’s the condensed version.
Eliminate millions in payroll and pensions, sell the equipment, property and buildings so we can start collecting real estate taxes on some of these prime locations.
Give us a break, the townships went out with the horse and buggy, you know it and we know it.
We don’t need a taxpayer-funded group hired by the townships to tell us why you’re needed.
Stop the township carnival from feeding at the taxpayers’ trough, you’re long out of date.
We don’t need you, we don’t want you, you need to go away.
Get on your horse and buggy and spread your remaining fertilizer in a pasture where it might do some good.
