Real Estate Taxes & Seniors on Fixed Income Gaining Some Attention

Posted by

The Lake County Gazette newspaper reporting thought our comments to the Lake County Commissioners about seniors and real estate taxes was notable enough to publish on 10-20-17.

Here is a copy of the article.

Lake County Gazette 10.20.17

Please note that Commissioner Jerry Cirino chose to publicly mention a personal disagreement between himself and me – months after the incident happened…Here is the back story…….

We were trying to get support from the Lake County Commissioners to rescind a resolution introduced years ago by Commissioner Dan Troy, and former Commissioners Sines and Aulfudish that accepted a form of identification for illegal aliens known as the Matricular Card.  I had heard from reliable sources that Cirino was reluctant to support such an issue since “it will hurt his chances for re-election” in FOUR years.   Mr. Cirino was already having fund raisers to support his re-election, even after just being elected.

I decided to reach out to my patriotic friends with an email asking them to contact Cirino and tell him why the Matricular card was such a bad idea.  Unfortunately, one of the patriots had “a lapse in judgment”, and forwarded the email to Cirino.  In less than 30 minutes after I sent the email, Cirino calls me and vociferously demands that I retract the statement. I told Cirino that I stand by the statement, and that I would never reveal my sources of the information.

I have since forgiven my patriotic friend for his lapse in judgment, since my faith commands me to “forgive those that trespass against me”.  I would like to remind Commissioner Cirino of Exodus 20:16  “Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor”.  There are consequences for our actions, in this life and the next…
