Now, we are going to receive letters referring back to the so-called 20% tax raise.Once the people got smart, then the 20% turned into a swaption which nobody knew about. When The People learned of the swaption,then the petitions were done incorrectly. After the ruling on the petitions, then Stoffa sued again over the Election Commission's decision and the Home Rule Charter.
Now that this seems to be going down the tubes, Angle announces today that he won't appeal his case,although his side kick will. Now, we are back to a 16-18% raise in taxes which will be written in a letter to educate all taxpayers in order to defeat the referendum.
Now, I ask the following: If Gracedale needed a 20% hike in August to operate for the year,why did the County(Angle) place Gracedale in the budget for a half year which, by his own admission,should have raised our taxes by 10%,however, that did not appear on our tax bills.
Stoffa created a Budget which included Gracedale for an entire
year and included No tax hike at all.
So, who is fooling who?
I can easily see that something else is involved ,and I believe that the REAL reason for the sale of Gracedale will soon emerge to discredit Stoffa. Angle has led Stoffa down the yellow brick road for a reason.
Since I believe that Soffa is the better of the 2, I surely hope that Stoffa wakes up and informs the public of the truth. The tax hikes are scare tactics because they change and/or disappear from time to time or as needed.
Stoffa knows that if the proper changes are made at Gracedale and his administration hires a management who understands business and companies which know how to make money, Gracedale will be in the black.
Gracedale needs aggressive leadership who know how to supervise it's personnel.
The County , if we cannot afford the demands of the unions, have to say NO.
If this approach can work, why are we spending so much of our money to rid ourselves of Gracedale and use scare tactics.
Stoffa would agree with this. Too many people at Gracedale and at the County level have let Gracedale down while featherbedding their own nests.
Come on Stoffa and Council,get the job done now.
