Hey Joe Library got me thinking about the issues with the County Executive. When are you going to do a story on our County Executive cancelling the County's tax sale this past year because he owed over $6,000 in property taxes on several slum properties that he has. He didn't want his name in the newspaper so he devised a scam to cancel the program just to keep him from being embarrassed. This scam cost the County taxpayers several hundred thousand dollars in revenue. Then the scandal with the free tuition scholarship is going to cost the tax payers several hundred thousand dollars and up to a $1 million or more. The scandals from the County Executives office keeps adding up.

HaHaHa August 17, 2016 at 2:35 AM I knew there was a real reason why he mucked up that tax sale this year.

I can see the headlines now. "County Executive Loses Homes to County Tax Sale" LMAO

Say it isn't so! This makes the first year that his name isn't in the newspaper for his property going to the tax sale. Sounds to me like some corruption going on there.

What a way to keep your name off the tax sale list. Nice move there Mr. County Executive. Let's get an Economic Development Scholarship in your name so we can be distracted by some more of your fraud.

Bob Culver lied to the tax paying citizens and the other municipalities who depended on these auctions. Then he got his lying @$$ Finance Director to be his attack dog and cover his butt. Then when someone from another town questioned this she went into attack mode. Ask Karen Hughes. Please speak up Mayor Hughes.
