Hey JT when are you going to do the story on our County Executive cancelling the County's tax sale because he owed over $6,000 in property taxes on several slum properties that he has. He didn't want his name in the newspaper so he devised a scam to cancel the program just to keep him from being embarrassed. This scam cost the County taxpayers several hundred thousand dollars in revenue. The scandals from the County Executives office keeps adding up.
