How dare you! In this time when so many people are struggling to get through a day, a week or even a month that you see fit to distribute and approve pay raises for the very group of executives who have successfully raised our property taxes 14 percent in St. Lawrence County in order to cover the cost of the county budget! This county is not made up of very wealthy people but for the most part people who work hard, try to do what is right and raise a family. These are people who pay their taxes, care about others and look to do better each year. Those of us who have jobs are required to do more with less as this is “difficult times.” We are held to high standards and take our work seriously and with pride!
