Stark County Sheriff Gives 41 Employees Lay Off Notice

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.

Too bad.

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!


  1. After the MRDD levy, I hope that every Lake County voter now knows that a replacement levy equals a tax increase. The ballot language does not point out what the millage of the existing levy is.

  2. I call Issue 4 in Painesville Township "The Sheriff Dunlap Bailout Bill of 2010."

    With all of the talk about extending the Bush tax cuts because this is the wrong time to raise taxes, how come the local ruling class hasn't caught the message?

    If all of these levies pass, Lake County will soon be a ghost town.

  3. LOL! Dunlap's bailout.


    Wait a minute!

    Taxn' Trustee Galloway's bailout of Dan Dunlap and other County Officials that are clients (e.g. Ray Sines).


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!
