Letter: Prefers layoffs, budget cuts over tax increase

Jana Esch writes:
In response to Adair County Judge Executive Gale Cowan. You state: "Our next step will be cutting services or laying off employees. I want to bring back services. Not cut more." Ask the local businesses in this county what they have been forced to do this past year due to the local government restricting their business.

Where is the concern for the people that have been forced to lay off or cut hours of their employees? It is unconscionable to forcibly take away someone's livelihood and then demand they pay more taxes. I would suggest you lay off, or cut hours, of employees, and cut services to fit your budget. Maybe when you let this county thrive again we all will be better off.
