Editorial by Paul Wheeler

Three items of note at Monday’s CCC meeting:

Democrats, claiming they heard citizens’ protests, proposed a ‘non-binding’ resolution for rescinding the controversial 65% local income tax passed earlier this year for the council to review, but had ‘no-shows’ in their majority and couldn’t pass it. Whether by design or not, it does not embarrass anyone but themselves for a transparent last attempt at posturing for 2008. If they had listened to their constituents sooner and paid attention to protesters who filled the council room including those shut out during a city county building lockdown, this debacle would not be in discussion.

Union in order to work? Hardly fair and equal treatment.

The Democrats’ final parting shot was to extract a higher fee for copying paperwork and give to the poor. If you are buying a home, now you have to pay even more at closing, as if property taxes and foreclosures weren’t bad enough. Forcing home buyers to pay into an undercover welfare system at property owner’s expense is a sad commentary on this outgoing Council, who claims to hear the people, but still doesn’t get it. Please stop spending in clever ways that hit your employers; the public. Thank goodness that was your last night. This should give caution for the new council. Unless you want to add your name to the flush list in November, start following the peoples’ wishes; not your personal agenda.

We are watching.
