If you laid all elected officials end to end………. that would be nice.
Montgomery County Commissioners must be leaping for joy over how they have bamboozled normally prudent voters to see things their way.
An email circulating in last 24hrs brought this home to me. A decent fellow citizen in precinct 3 apparently attended James Noack’s Advisory Council meeting. I called the author of the email to ask if the Commissioner had specified the terms of the bonds or the impact on our taxes, he said Noack thought the impact would be “minimal”. I’ll agree that our commissioners court do deliver things that are minimal, like transparency, or fiscal restraint. but when it come to spending they are anything but minimalists.
Automatically, one thinks that’s where you go to advise the commissioner to maintain his fiscal sensibilities in the face of impending financial uncertainties related to the end of destructive Quantitative Easing by the Federal Reserve Bank which has already resulted in free fall of oil prices that support the Montgomery County economy.
But no, Noack wants to respond to the infrastructure crisis brought on in Montgomery County by artificial stimulation of population growth by our plundering over borrowing and overspending ( and selective tax abating) elected officials by doubling down on debt.
Noack is unhappy, the commissioners want to issue a miserable $300 million in bonds split four ways among commissioner precincts but that only yields a paltry $75 million for him to lavish away on what the email called his “project needs list”.
Conservative Commissioner Wants More
The lady who forwarded the email to me added her own appeal on Noack’s behalf…
Friends & neighbors, conservative S. County Commissioner (Pct. 3) James Noack needs our help.
Commissioner Noack needs our help alright, here’s how. Commissioner Noack is not content with a possible $300 million to spend on the “project need list”. He prefers $514 Million with his cut a whopping $150 million!
That will bring commissioners court debt alone to almost One Billion dollars
