Maybe our elected representatives could actually pass some meaningful legislation making any issue defeated at the polls cannot be put back on the ballot for at least 2 years (longer would be better). Then these people that are wasting our time and resources will finally get the message. Just keep putting it on the ballot and wasting so much more time, money and resources. Susie needs to find something constructive to do with her time. How many people have died due to bad water or bad air in our community? Answer, zero.

It is going to take more strong messages such as this to tell our elected officials that we are sick and tired of their wasteful ways. I'm sure the outlandish raises recently reported by the Vindicator finally opened some eyes. The sad part is that it will be right back on the ballot, counting on peoples short attention plan. Now we will see the commissioners retaliate by telling us they don't have the money to repair potholes(which they have not done with the money), then will come the scare tactic of Sheriff Department layoffs. The sad supposed leaders have no clue.

"Engler also has tax problems, with $161,616 in liens filed by the IRS on his property. Engler has said the figure is closer to $50,000 to $60,000. Ginnetti, who supports Donofrio, has a $27,687 federal tax lien on his home since 2010 for unpaid taxes in 2005."Law breaker now wants to be a Judge, WOW. His opponent should be disqualified because his brother serves as a Judge. Not only is Engler a law breaking tax cheat, but he obviously is not to bright. Do any of these political hacks pay their taxes? If this were me, I'd be in jail where they belong.

Another entitled politician that thinks taxes are for the common people, not them. Is it just me or do most of them seem to liberal Democrats that pass most of the tax increases.

Change and Hope the buzz words of this administration. I have a little change left and hope that Obamacare doesn't take that from me.

So now we have another incompetent, lazy, entitled person going on the city (taxpayer) payroll because his manager is incompetent, lazy and entitled. I would guwss that at least half of these 95 cell phones are not necessary. But they have no worries, just pass another tax, plenty of money.

Strictly a PR move. I can only imagine how short a time until we see another increase in water and sewage rate to make up for this hidden revenue loss.

To formerdemliberal, I couldn't agree more. These career politicians only know how to continually raise taxes. If they have lost $4.4 million in revenue from housing federal prisoners shouldn't there be an offsetting savings in expense? I forgot this is the government. If no politician wants to raise taxes, why are they constantly being raised? As services constantly decline tax income keeps going up. Wake up and vote these bums out.

"Judge Krichbaum took issue with the use of the term “improper,” pointing out Chance is a nonviolent offender," Maybe these offenders need to serve their sentences, I take issue with the Judge saying "has served a substantial part of her sentence." 27 out of 48 is not what I would consider substantial. Seems to me a four year sentence was lenient enough for such an "egregious" crime. What are the consequences if she does not repay? This was a miscarriage of justice and another joke in the courthouse.

Another example of government sending jobs overseas. Wake up, it may be popular to blame private business sector, but the government uses our money to send jobs overseas every day.
