To a few of our Douglas County Commissioners: You are a gutless group of government-bloating blowhards

Douglas County Commissioners Bev Bales, Dan Olson, and Paul Anderson - you are a gutless, irrelevant bunch of individuals.

I am seething over your decision to add to the salaries for a few elected officials of Douglas County - giving pay raises totaling $6,000.

Pay raises were approved by the above-mentioned Douglas County Commissioners at their first meeting of 2010 on Tuesday morning, January 6.

They are as follows (pay raise with their total salary in parentheses):

•Chris Karpan, county attorney – $1,000 ($106,034).

•Tom Reddick, auditor/treasurer – $1,500 ($90,555).

•Dawn Crouse, recorder – $1,800 ($60,000).

•Troy Wolbersen, sheriff – $1,500 ($86,169).

Commissioners Norm Salto and Jerry Johnson - THANK YOU for your stand against this very bad action. I give you a huge pat on the back for voting against the pay raises.

More on this wholly irresponsible act of government spending will be published in the January 14 issue of the Herman Hoffman Tribune.
