Government can’t be trusted or allowed more self-approved authoirty

Print Article

When you run for office and the job pays $52,000, which is a whole lot more than the majority makes in this area, you either accept thatís the pay or you stay home.

You donít take the job and then use a consultant paid for by the public to give yourself* an approximately eighty percent raise in five years and excuse the exploit with ďit wasnít taken not ďgivenĒ over a period of time and its comparable. This isnít Kootenai County and this isnít Boundary County, itís Bonner, and the pay was $52,000, not oh well when we get into office weíll just give ourselves more of the publicís money. If you donít like the pay, move along.

This all points to the monster in the room. And that is government can neither be trusted and that government cannot be allowed to vote themselves more authority, ever. And by the way, our property taxes will go up, now, if we allow the commissioners to stay in office. The position pays $52,000, and the application process is open.
