Congrats for having the courage to write a column telling it like it is! Workers in the private sector have experienced the pain of job loss for years; why do these local public employees think that the Village(s) taxpayers need to support them? Times have changed and we are not their parents. As you stated, the Villages are now dinosaurs. The union workers living in the area are trying to secure a majority of seats on the councils in a desperate attempt to keep their unnecessary jobs. Double taxation and minimal citizen representation has to go! Who has the "guts" to get the ball rolling and circulate petitions?
