Voice your concerns over unfair, biased mailer about Jail Tax. File your complaints!
Jack Louws, County Executive, admits to using approx. $28,000 of tax money to pay for this mailer.
Jack Louws, Sheriff Bill Elfo and Dave McEachran publicly support a new, big jail and are all on the mailer making quotes and statements. The mailer is heavily biased and potentially a misuse of public funds, office, facility, staff and resources.
