Media Boosters of the Status Quo Shouldn't Complain About Tax Rate Increases
I just read $cott McCaffrey's annoyed comments about the County Board's proposed 1.5 cent tax rate increase. What a hoot. Same old $ara$ota $cott who never saw a proposal, activity, program, personal, corporate, non-profit, or government agenda, he didn't want to promote via his Inside Nova blog and Sun Gazette newspaper? Starting with Frank O'Leary's car tax decal design competition that's not only illegal but has mushroomed into an annual festival costing the taxpayers several hundred thousand dollars. Sheesh.
While $cott's expressing his annoyance with the County Board and its proposed tax rate increase he's been preparing to join APS's winter junket to San Diego for the coronation of Coach Patrick Murphy as National School Superintendent of the Year. How much did that P.R. campaign cost taxpayers? Maybe $cott can find out when he's out wining and dining with APS's VIPs.
I have to agree with what I hear around the County: "The waste in Arlington County Government could fund the operation of two small counties downstate, and the waste in APS could fund the school systems in those counties".
Thanks for your blog.
