Steven Pokorny offered this comment on a recent article:
“Pinkman ‘We will cut our levy again this year.’
Really, why couldn’t you have lowered it more last year.
“oh yeah, legal fees.
“How much more could you have saved us with out your political payback agenda, and general ignorance?
“Maybe you can get your spin doctors to write another BS article about how it’s never your fault.”
Here is Andrew Gasser’s response, written on Friday:
“If only every taxing body in McHenry cut taxes like we did in the highway department.
“I do realize I was ignorant.
“I never thought the sheriff would refuse to investigate the highway department and it was my assumption based on what was discovered going on at the highway department any competent prosecutor would have indicted the former highway commissioner…
“Steve – I was wrong.
“The sheriff refused to investigate and the prosecutor refused to pursue the case.
“This is why I now say there are no democrats and their are no republicans.
“It is the elite political class against the rest of us.
“Personally – I take your criticism as a badge of honor.
“While so many people out their tolerate their elected politicians taxing to the max I get critiqued for not cutting taxes more.
“I am proud we lowered taxes every year despite “republicans” voting no on my levy.
“Maybe you will decide to run someday and (try to) do a better job.
“Always easier sitting on the sidelines and Monday Morning quarterbacking.
“Have a blessed weekend Steve.”
