Yes Legislator Runkle was once in law enforcement but now he has been elected guardian of our tax dollar and he is doing a great job.

Do you really want an increase in county taxes? Money has to come from somewhere. The county can't just keep printing it like they do in Washington to matter how good our county employees are. When things get better economically I would be the first to say county employees deserve good pay and benefits. We have suffered tremendous job loss in the last decade. We're had to sell the county home. Those people work hard and deserve good pay too. The money just isn't there right now.

The proposed contract offers no raises or retroactive pay for 2012 or 2013, and includes 2% raise each year for 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. Also of note, Legislator Runkle was once on the other side of this fence and I'm sure had no problem fighting for a decent contract.

Is that 8% per year or 8% total for the contract period?
