Lake County Developmental Disabilities Board has Political action Committee Spending a lot of $$$$ in order to Raise Your Taxes

The Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities wants to increase their take of your property taxes from $58.20 to $104.12 per $100, 000 of property valuation.

The News-Herald has run about three pieces this Winter and Spring making the Board's case, here is another one.

An interesting piece of news was reported last week: Friends of MRDD Citizens raised $101, 331.15 and spent $66, 825.87.  This tells us there a lot of people with a vested interest in seeing this levy pass.

Who could that be? Probably the employees whose salaries are shown below.  The top three salaries at this county government agency are:  $135, 924.10, $100, 981.66, and $96, 570.76.

  1. Whats your take on the endorsement the News-Herald gave the levy today? Why?


We don't Censor...we just make sure its polite and factual! Accusations made against private citizens will not be tolerated. Public Officials, past & present, or those seeking office do not enjoy the same treatment. If you don't like it...don't run for office!
