Senior Citizen is right. Too often, Wilson County's entire budget process has been penny wise and dollar foolish. They go after all of this pie-in-the-sky nonsense, allowing each commissioner to have his little fiefdom, but not giving them adequate funds to maintain their roads. The county lacks animal control because it never has the money, but yet everyone gets across-the-board raises every single year ad infinidum.

The deputies should be paid what they're worth, whatever that is. They should have the tools they need to effectively and efficiently perform their jobs. But why do so many county employees need trucks and SUVs, if their jobs don't require anything other than using those vehicles to drive between appearances? Maybe they could buy cheaper vehicles, or even use their own and submit an expense report?

So where did they get this 5% figure from? Old people haven't had a social security raise in forever. Teacher pensions have remained flat and people with regular jobs haven't had raises because of the Obama economy. Yet, the office girls, many of them with duplicitous job functions, get to sit up in air-conditioning and have guaranteed salary increases every single year. Where are the priorities?

Even worse, some of these elected officials get defensive when the peons dare question the validity of these raises. Wilson County should demand better!
