Letter: Taxpayers paid for bonus Christmas gifts

The Herald Bulletin

---- — I read an article in The Herald Bulletin about how the county employees used their $500 bonus this year. It was such a blessing to see that many of them used it entirely on Christmas gifts.

I wanted to thank every Republican, and especially the Republican leadership who supported our wonderful Republican County councilwoman, for their effort in making it possible for me to give the county workers such a wonderful Christmas with my tax dollars.

Next year maybe she will vote to give them birthday bonuses. We can only hope to continue to make the lives of our beloved county workers better and better ... so glad they have someone like our great councilwoman looking out for them. My Christmas and New Year's wish is to have a council person who has my interest in mind ahead of our county government and its employees.
