LoBuglio changes position on tax increase

Brabo accuses LoBuglio of listening to small group on tax increase

The King George Board of Supervisors budget work session Tuesday evening, April 24, was cut short because of a change in support for the budget as presented by County Administrator Travis Quesenberry over the past several months.  
Chairman Cedell Brooks reported there were not three votes for the advertised  four cent tax increase coming to the table tonight.
John LoBuglio said he would not vote for the four-cent tax increase because he felt the budget as presented on paper did not adequately show exactly what line items were increased and by how much.  He had voted to advertise the four cent increase, so constituents could comment on the proposed increase, either for or against it.
Supervisor Ruby Brabo was incensed that LoBuglio would come to the meeting with a changed mind.  She accused him of listening to a very small representation of his district, six to be exact.
She said she believed the four cent increase is necessary to insure adequate funding for Fire & Rescue services, and the Sheriff’s department.  Brabo and Brooks are in favor of the four cent increase.  Supervisor Dale Sisson is in favor of the three cent increase as presented in the proposed budget.  Supervisor Joe Grzeika opposes a tax increase at this time, and has been since day one of the budget talks.
Brooks stated if there was not going to be a vote for an increase, or a vote on the budget, then there was no point in the representatives from EMS, Fire & Sheriff’s department speaking on behalf of getting additional funding.
As there was not going to be a vote,  the Board agreed to meet again on Monday, April 30 at 5 p.m., and the meeting was adjourned.
