Porter County: Want to become Lake?
Fears of Porter County suffering from the ills of its neighbor to the West are beginning to become reality, and we have to reverse this trend before it’s too late. Layers of incompetence, evidenced by the need for well over $400,000 in consulting fees to teach our officers how to do their jobs, are a sign that it’s time for something different. As well, while Porter County is 89th out of 92 Indiana counties at getting its tax bills out on time, Democrats continue to blame the state for its failures, without trying to solve any problems. Passing the buck and playing the blame game are not leadership. Democrats have had their chance to control county government for several terms. Perhaps its time for a fresh set of eyes to look at how we do business and exercise the duty government owes to taxpayers—to spend as little of their tax money and as efficiently and effectively as possible. I agree with the NWI Times: its endorsed candidates Jim Murphy, John Evans, Jim Burge, and Sandi Snyder are the right choices to get this County back on track.
