Letter: Only 3 councilmen listened to public

The Herald Bulletin

---- — Only 3 councilmen listened on vote

As Kojak would say,“ Who loves ya, baby?”

Well, when it comes to seniors in Madison County it sure wasn’t the County Council.

On May 13, 2013, the Council reinstated the wheel tax over the objections of most of the Council’s constituents.

It appears that Grandma will pay $25 to license her 3,000-pound Buick while the 70,000-pound tractor-trailer will have its trailer fee reduced to $15. Which vehicle do you really think will do the most damage to our roadways?

The mayor keeps asking who should pay for the repairs of the roads. How’s this for an idea? Let those who do the most damage to the roads pay the largest fee.

With what happened that Monday night, the police should have placed yellow crime tape around the County Council’s chambers for it was truly a crime scene.

Just remember in the next election, only Buddy Patterson, Rick Gardner and David McCartney voted on behalf of the taxpaying seniors.
