After receiving my new tax bill yesterday, I am so proud that the additional funds that I must pay this year will be devoted for the betterment of the selected few in the county that actually use the sports complex, instead of spending on really needed things for the overly burdened tax paying citizen to make life better for each and everyone of us. GREAT JOB, keep it coming! Way past time for a rethink?
