Osceola County Wants to Hear from You!
Osceola County, Florida – As part of the process to develop a new strategic plan, Osceola County is inviting residents to take a few minutes to complete a survey to help shape the county’s future.
“We really want to hear from citizens as we move forward,” said Commission Chairman Brandon Arrington. “More data will help connect us to our citizens as we make policy decisions that impact our community now and in the future.”
Feedback on the services we provide, and the services that citizens value the most will help the Board of County Commissioners make decisions on priorities over the next several years. All responses are anonymous.
Links to the survey are available on the County website (www.osceola.org) and on the County Library website(www.osceolalibrary.org)/http://ucf.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_diruSwMM8IWzLet
Well, congratulations are in order to Osceola's top government officials as Osceola has now become a laughing stock across several states, including Kentucky, Alabama, North & South Carolina, and of course, throughout the state of Florida. Now, we're only counting the people we've heard from and saw on the tube. Orange County's Mayor Jacobs simply smiled and could offer no comment when asked about Osceola County becomming the highest taxed county in Central Florida. And, we also have heard that the lone Republican voting against the added gas tax was looking out for the taxpayers. Well, not so fast. Mr. Hawkins knows very well how to count and he could certainly count to 4, as in 4 Democratic commissioners voting FOR the added tax. We believe it was the easiest way out for Hawkins who has his sights set on higher office.(and a lifetime pension) What truly troubles us is the way each of the 4 aye votes tried to explain their own incompetency.
It will take a Super Majority to approve the measure and we believe ALL 4 DEMOCRATS will vote FOR the added nickel tax. We have told you all several times that Mr Harford and Mr Arrogance, Arrington have never seen a tax or fee they didn't like! Well folks, hold on because they will stick you with an additional nickel gas tax and will come back for more in the form of the sales tax probably at the end of summer to early Fall!
Why? Because the Osceola County Board of County Commissioners did away with impact fees, taking care of their buddies. They also ALL FAILED to plan for little Brandon's choo choo train! Now, YOU will have to pay off the BOCC debts from their past few years of spending like drunk sailors on shore leave! Not only that, they continue to spend money they do NOT have and obligate future income before it's collected! Come on Osceola County, get PISSED at these clowns! Anyone voting FOR this tax MUST BE DEFEATED in the next elections they're involved in!!
We'll be back with more on Saturday! Gotta go out and buy up the vaseline supplies in the county!!!
Okay, okay, we'll tell the truth. The three of us have had some problems lately, one had a death in the family, the other two angry, teed off, and almost ready to toss in the towel. Teed off because of the complete silliness of a particular school board member, and the voters in his district and the rest of the county being willing to accept his completely stupid statements as "oh, that's just Jay sounding off again". What we do NOT understand is why his conduct is accepted at OUR school board meetings, as well as in OUR community? While some others in the past may, we say MAY have ignited a flame or two, Wheeler has conducted himself since first being elected the same way. Total disrespect for his fellow board members and anyone else who steps up to disagree with him! When will this conduct no longer be acceptable? Who the heck knows since the people, taxpayers and voters have accepted this boob as their school board representative for way too long. Just imagine if County and municipal leaders conducted themselves the way this guy does? Osceola people would not accept it! So again, why do they accept his type of behavior on the school board where the business of our school system, affecting OUR school children and employees? We believe the man to be a hypocrite, liar, certainly a scoundrel, and we continue to believe him to be a thief (see his record on "borrowing campaign money for personal use), and we certainly believe Mr Wheeler to be very bad for Osceola's school system.
