Let’s see if we have this latest story of township ineptitude correct (kudos to 6News and reporter Kara Kenney for their continued fine work in detailing these unfortunately true stories that seem to be more suited to Ripley’s Believe It or Not):
- A Morgan County township trustee resigns because there’s no more money left for poor relief
- The trustee cites personal reasons and simply disconnects the township office phone, which happens to be in her house
- State Board of Accounts audits reveal recent problems with recordkeeping, overspending and more
- The only person seeking the office thus far is the former trustee’s daughter, who also happens to be a precinct chair and will be part of the caucus to choose the temporary replacement
Read the full story. And ask yourself, and more importantly ask your legislators, when they’re going to put an end to this abuse of your taxpayer dollars. It’s not a political issue; it’s simply time to do away with ineffective and inefficient township government.
