April 30, 2013

Dear Editor, I am sure none of you commissioners want to read this letter because I am absolutely not agreeing with any hike in fees for my license plate. I am paying plenty right now....

I agree Nancy ! and it's more than Sr's that are being pinched.

Young families are being pinched through higher grocery prices due to high fuel/transportation costs. Higher retail prices, utilities, high unemployment etc....

Speaking of unemployment.... it looks like Belmont County is "overemployed" 2 Port Authority Heads + Development Director. Most neighboring counties use 1 person, NOT 3. Meanwhile, every county dept is overstaffed by at least 3 people.

Maybe IF Fred Bennett, Favede, Probst and Coffland took a voluntary 5% pay cut, and a 3% cut for all county employees, I could "warm up" to this proposed extortion.

You see we the public have gone a long time without raises, and minimal increases at best.

It has nothing to do with party affiliation. It amazes me how every time Republicans don't hold the White House and Presidential Cabinet which they think they own every thing that happens is caused by Democrats. I certainly remember when Voinavich got elected his second term as governor. He wasted no time screwing every one with tax hikes on every thing you can imagine and yes..he also used that word that Republicans use when they don't want accused of raising taxes..fees. He is the reason that every fee at any Ohio BMV is as high as it is now. oh..and remember the V group..What a joke. The V group got almost every construction contract in the state and didn't do any thing right. tens of millions of dollars came up missing. isn't nice to remember the good old days when he had a wonder full Republican governor who's family owned a construction company. Yes FEDUP ..you don't have to run your mouth that loud. We all REMEMBER aside of you. Those were YOUR PEOPLE.

I'm 100% against any fees on the citizens. they need to create a truck tax. Require all trucks working in the county to buy a sticker and display it on their plate regardless of what state the truck is from. allow them to pass through on the interstate only and a half mile from any interstate ramp to buy duel. eat, etc with out a sticker. any thing further than that off of the interstate fine them for not having the sticker.

When Republicans give tax breaks to the rich, poor people and those on fixed incomes suffer. There are only 2 types of Republicans: Millionaires and suckers. Voting GOP is voting for your own death.

I am a life-long Progressive Democrat and believe that the hate language used when your name is not attached is sickening. I grew up with a Democrat father and a Republican mother and was taught to respect people of both parties. I can disagree with friends, but I try not to be nasty. Most of our elected officials are doing what they think is right. I believe that sometimes they let their opinions get in way of facts. My father taught me that more often as not you get what you pay for with taxes. Study U.S. and Ohio history and tell me that our forefathers could afford all they put in place for us.
