Geauga County retire/rehire abuses
This Thursday (1-14-13), at 10 A.M., at 470 Center St. (Rt. 44) in Chardon, the Geauga Commissioners meeting will be addressing the retire/rehire issue. It is across from Home Depot and next to Cookes Tires and Car Service.
This meeting is critical to attend for those of you who are against this type of "good old boy" crap that is harmfull to Geauga. The way to change this is to show up and voice your opinion. It will take you 2 hours out of this whole week to do that. If this is too much of a bother for some of you then you deserve the government you get.
Retire/rehire is demoralizing to county employees who are well qualified for these positions, have some ambition, and want to move up the ladder, but can't because the person who retired has been rehired back by their pals in the "good old boy" club. This helps stagnate the work force. It also prevents new people with fresh ideas from comming in.
Every single time one of these people retires we are told the same B.S., that these people are so good at their jobs they are irreplacable and greatly needed. We are also told this will save money for Geauga. The fact is, these people will still recieve full benefits.
I can assure you that NO ONE is indispensable and that Geauga County will NOT go down the tubes without these people, that we will continue to move on with new people at the helm and maybe even do better than we did.
The retire/rehire practice is a big, big, big cash cow for the people in the "good old boys" club. They really know how to "milk" the taxpayers. Most of the people involved in this scheme are making upwards of a six figure income while the rest of you hard working people are struggling and deprived of the opportunity to move up, and they are doing it off your dime.
I call it "Milk Money".
One verrrry good example of this is liberal David Lair. He is the front man, yes man, and lackey of the County Commissioners. He has done very well for himself in this scheme, living very well off taxpayers money. Most of these people do not have to work very hard. That is one reason why government jobs are so sought after plus the full benefits and retirement packages.
Show up at the meeting and lets put a stop to this!
