The 12 Gripes Of Christmas

On the 11th Day of Christmas the county gave to me...

Taxes, Taxes, Taxes

Soup Swillin Reilly
No Manger Scene
Closing of Moon Lake Park
Judge Ciavarella
Commissioner no one heard of
Greg Skrepenak
Corruption in the Courthouse
Reassessment Debacle
Greco and his TV's
And the bogus Levy Fee

Well, how can I Gripe about the county jug heads without mentioning the "T" word...TAXES. Just let me say we got plenty of them. In 2010, the triple threat over at the rats nest we call a courthouse, "In The Can" Mary Ann Petrilla, Tom "The Commissioner No One Heard Of" Cooney and Steve "The Turncoat" Urban decided to raise our property taxes 15% and that was right on top of reassessment. It was a double reaming with no KY! We all got bent over twice and didn't even get dinner and a movie. Just for the record, Steve Urban 'Jungle" voted against the increase as each lame Republican Commish does. Petrilla and Cooney blamed the spending habits of former Commissioner Greg "Big Ugly" Skrepenak for the budget problems. Sure, lets pin the blame on the guy that's not there anymore. How many times do you see that happen in your place of work. Instead of taking the blame, these yellow bellied lizards hammer Skrep with the blame. He has been thrown under the bus so many times they can't even scrape his carcass off the road. What I found interesting about this tax increase was the 2010 budget for the judicial branch - which included court administration, magisterial courts, stenographers, domestic relations, probation services and jury commissioners increased by $1.3 million, from $20.5 million to $21.8million. Those filthy bastard judges wanted more money to run their crooked courts and we the tax payers suffered. Thank goodness the county does not plan on another tax increase for 2011. I guess they figure, "Ah screw it"! Let the Home Rule tribunal handle it.
