He is backing the county's purchase of 6 acres of land in his district for 5 times it's worth. He explains the land appraised higher by a private appraiser because a private company does a more accurate thorough job than the county.
You mean a private company can do a better job than the government? If the county appraisers are off the mark by 500 precinct, no wonder the county is broke.
If the county appraisers are that bad at their job, then fire them! Think of the millions and millions of dollars not being paid in property taxes. This alone could pay for our furlough days, plus give us a raise.
Or could it be as simple as the whole land deal is dishonest and illegal? You would never guess that the one profiting from this deal is one of Rader's campaign contributors.
Surely this has the attention of our District Attorney. Nah.
