The Canton Repository reported yesterday that the Stark County Sheriff notified 41 employees that they would be laid off December 8th, 2010. This layoff is the result of the Stark County Sheriff responding to the need to cut his budget by 16%, or $2.6 million for 2011.
Anyone losing a job is terrible, period.
However, the public sector needs a wake-up call: downsizing, reductions in pay and benefits, etc.
We wonder why the Stark County Sheriff didn't just conspire with a political operative like Lake County Sheriff Dan Dunlap did to raise taxes? Dan Dunlap and Taxn' Trustee Galloway (who has County Officials as clients; hmmmmmmm) conspired to raise the taxes of people in Lake County townships in order to get them to pay for the Sheriff's services.
For instance, Concord Issue 4. This is also on Painseville Township and Perry Township's ballot. Disgusting. Shame on you Dan Dunlap and Taxn' Trustee Galloway!
