Lake County Commissioners…please read this and recognize the plight of Lake County seniors…

By Brian Massie, A Watchman on the Wall

Excerpts from the article:

By the time you are done reading this article, you may be tempted to tear your hair out.  A substantial portion of the U.S. population is deeply struggling in our current economic environment, but instead of focusing on helping Americans that are hurting, homeless and hungry, our leaders are going to great lengths to make things better for those that have no legal right to be in this country.  Our priorities are way out of whack, and U.S. voters are fed up.  Immigration has become the hottest political issue during this campaign season, but many of our politicians still don’t seem to understand why so many of us are so frustrated with what has been going on.

It is being reported that more than half of all Americans over the age of 65 “are living on incomes of $30,000 or less a year”…

And, for some, the retirement crisis is already here. Just over half of Americans over the age of 65 are living on incomes of $30,000 or less a year, according to the Census Bureau’s Current Population Survey. The largest share — just under 23% — have incomes between $10,000 and $19,999.

Millions of elderly Americans are barely surviving at this point.


Note to Lake County Seniors…ask the Lake County Commissioners, and the Auburn Career Center’s Board of Directors who is looking out for the seniors?

Lake County Commissioners Plecnik and Regovich want to keep $4.6 million in overpaid property taxes, and collect $1.8 million from the 30% property revaluation in 2024 with collection in 2025 without your vote. Auburn’s Board of Directors will not pay what the courts say they owe to retirees.

Really quite shameful actions by those elected officials. Wait, we forgot that the Auburn Board of Directors are not elected by the people. However, we still get taxed without having any representation on their Board…Taxation without representation? Wasn’t that what we fought the British over back in 1776?
