Fire the regional Council of Governments


What’s wrong with this picture? A volunteer council of governments decides they need more money.

Trumbull County Regional Council of Governments has decided that they need a sales tax increase to support themselves. Wasn’t this Council created to help save us money, not create another political entity that costs us money? I say it is time to reduce our sales tax by 0.25 percent in response to this ridiculous idea.

Why do we have three commissioners? It’s their job to allocate resources. Maybe we need one or two fewer commissioners. I certainly believe we do not need a council of government that is going to cost us any additional money.
