Don't let the vote count mislead you it is not actually as accurate as it should be because I actually HAD EVERYONE in the office vote YES for all the 7 yes votes so far.!

He'll NO 10, 20 30& 40 % raises with the head count going up 23 people and Ditzler claiming loss of people and people doing multiple jobs! Then the union rep filing grievances for the sheriff trying to use inmates vote NO print how many county employees that are on disability, that will be an eye opener to the best kept secret!

Commissioners increased employee paychecks by 7 million dollars last year!

Think about that when they say there is no money to fix these terrible roads.

I won't vote for it because it's permanent. We voters gave the county one of the two tax levies that support the bulk of the county as a permanent tax. The other one, I want some control over. Renewing every five years isn't that much of a hardship.

If it becomes continuous we will not have any say so in the future and they can waste the money more then they do now!!!
How much of our taxes go toward "administrative "costs versus "Services" (fixing roads, etc. )???

Twice in the last few months county employees were given 111,000$ to end thier contracts one who took care of the disabled children dept sat on his ass for 6 months for another 50,000$ and they want everyone to keep voting Yes on taxes while they continue to waste our money? What percentage of health care are they county people employees paying for? Probably less than 5 percent with Cadillac benefits n pensions while the private sectors pays 20 % and has a 401k

Awful strange how this poll could be No vote three times higher than YES vote then over night the YES vote passes the NO vote ? Very strange?

Agreed, 2much. It shouldn't be that hard to restrict voting to once per account.
