15 Health and Human or Social Services2011 -- when the new county government will be in charge. That means Jimmy Dimora, Frank Russo, and the lame-duck government won't spend a cent of it.
Proposed Tax Levy (Renewal)
A renewal of a tax for the benefit of Cuyahoga County for the purpose of SUPPLEMENTING GENERAL FUND APPROPRIATIONS FOR HEALTH AND HUMAN OR SOCIAL SERVICES at a rate not exceeding 2.9 mills for each one dollar of valuation, which amounts to 29 cents for each one hundred dollars of valuation, for four years, commencing in 2010, first due in calendar year 2011.
Lots of people have been worried that voters will vent their anger at Dimora, Russo, and their cronies at the levy. Jim Rokakis mentioned that in his City Club speech last week. But it's the new leaders voters will choose in September and November who'll spend the levy cash.
So here's the ad I'd like to see: "Yes on 15! Guaranteed Dimora- and Russo-free!"
