DISRESPECTED!

Disrespected!

“Conner Sows Seeds of Discontent”

If not for Commissioners Tim Sullivan and Leslie Campione, the renewal of the Penny Sales Tax probably would not have passed.  Every time they spoke on behalf of the renewal they were excoriated by members of the public for the tax and spend policies and boorish behavior of Commissioner Jimmy Conner.  They had to perform a kabuki dance trying to defend the tax while deflecting the harsh criticisms of Conner.

Earlier this month, the Lake County Board of County Commissioners voted on their leadership for 2016.  Commissioner Sean Parks was elected County Commission Chairman for 2016, replacing the bombastic Jimmy Conner.  In a surprising move, Commissioner Tim Sullivan was passed over as Vice-Chairman, as Jimmy Conner united with Commissioners Welton Cadwell and Sean Parks to block Commissioner Sullivan.  This was a snub and disrespect of Commissioner Sullivan who was next in line for the seat.

There are two factions on the Lake County Board of County Commissioners—tax and spend liberals and true fiscal conservatives.  Commissioners Conner, Cadwell and Parks have not seen a tax or regulation they do not support.  These three Commissioners have been the driving force behind every bad decision in Lake County for the last two years and the primary reason the local economy is collapsing.  Businesses and investors are running away from Lake County because of the tax and spend liberals on the Lake County Commission.

Commissioners Sullivan and Campione are the only true fiscal conservatives on the Lake County Commission—and that’s the truth.

As for Commissioners Sullivan and Campione, they fell into the trap of believing that Conner would do the right thing.  They expended their political capital defending him, and this is their payback.  The only way this dynamic changes—having one less tax and spend liberal on the Lake County Commission at the end of 2016.

WE SHOULD BE THANKFUL, BUT…

We Should be Thankful, but…

Stop Ceding Power to Government

Citizens for Better Government, L.L.C. would like to extend to all of its members and readers our heartfelt wish that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  In these days of world tumult, and despite the political leadership in Washington D.C., we still remain a blessed people living in the greatest country in the world.

However, our freedoms and liberties are under assault by those who desire authoritarian control.  We the People have ceded too much power to those in government at all levels.  The corruption and corporate welfare that exist in our country are the worst in our history, because our society has made excuses for bad behavior.  Whether you are a Republican, Democrat or Independent, you should understand that the number one issue for any cause is money—who is getting paid?  Even in Lake County the public corruption of local officials demonstrates how far our political class has lost its way.

As you gather with your family on Thanksgiving, say a prayer for our nation—that we may find the character and morality that has been lost in this new age of technology.  Help us all to stop blurring the lines of right and wrong, but most of all open our eyes and recognize that the political class seeks to divide us by racial, ethnic and cultural lines because it keeps them in control.  Those politicians and government which seek dominion over us, fear a united people more than anything.

Happy Thanksgiving!  God bless your family and the United States of America!
