Wouldn't it be nice if I could give myself a 5% raise every year.There are many ways to cut taxes.What type of insurance do the teachers get at Badger-How much do they put into their pensions,How about bidding out some of the services that are done in the city of lake geneva.I can go on and on but when that gravy train is yours you don't want to take less but the sad thing is the rest of us are.The school board which are mostly teacher appointed didn't want to cut some of the great benefits the teachers get so they passed it on to the tax payers.I would love to no what benefits the teachers in Lake geneva get compared to other schools in the area.Im sure we could fine some areas where we are over paying.If you could clean a park in Lake geneva for half the price than the worker that cleans it now why would you not do that.If it was cleaned just as good.Well You can't stick it to the parks worker who mows the grass but you can stick it to the tax payer and that fine.When will this i deserve a raise every year end.I have not had a raise in five years.I guess I should work for the city but does that make it right.
