Congratulations to all you conservative minded people! This is a win for the people of Jefferson County! You did not buy into the FEAR perpetuated by the people who wanted to raise your taxes 16.56%. You see that all levels of government are out of control spending OUR money. You believe the private sector can do a better job than government. You realize as Ronald Reagan said, “Government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem.”
However, remember the fight is not over. They still are going to raise taxes over 8%, and probably more in the future. We need them to see that it is their duty to cut taxes!
Now, maybe the county board members who voted for this budget should be voted out when they are up for reelection . That would mean a lot of change, because only three of the supervisors voted against it. We need to remain vigilant!
