VOTERS HAVE HAD THEIR FILL OF OFFICIALS' LAME EXCUSES

Shame on all the county officials who have chosen not to pay their taxes on time. Do they think that we are brain dead and will swallow their lame excuses as to why the taxes were late, i.e., they were put in the wrong folder, my husband pays the bills, etc.?

When people decide they want to hold a government office, either elected or appointed, they place themselves in a position to follow all the laws to the letter, not to pick and choose which laws they will obey. They must set an example for the people they represent -- that laws are important and must be obeyed.

Taxpayers must wake up and vote. Become educated regarding candidates and what they stand for and let them know we won't stand for the type of behavior we have been seeing. We must realize that the people in the spotlight recently are only a drop in the bucket as to the total number of officials who snub their noses at rules and deadlines. Let's not let them get away with this behavior.
