Those in power get more while rest of us get less

When our forefathers put together words for this nation to live by I bet they thought government would not be what it is today, where those in power only think of themselves and what is in it for them before they do anything.

It seems it’s not for the people or even by the people, but for what they can get out of it.

I see the county budget and wonder why? The mayor, council members and the staff get large raises while people of this great county are having such a hard time just putting food on the table.

And they get raises. Why do we need them? All are useless. When have they done anything useful in the past 10 to 20 years? Those in government who cheat and steal from the public are still there. When one is not put back in office then one of their friends gives them a job. Enough already.
