Dear fellow tax hikers, today we will discuss the escalating criminal behavior in the Blue Ash Police Force. Currently Blue Ash Police Officer Jason Lobenthal is facing removal from his job for criminal incidents committed last August. And recently we have learned that another Blue Ash Officer, William Fritts, was arrested for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and reckless operation.
We do not believe these developments should concern you tax hikers. Haven't you all heard - Blue Ash is a "well-run" government! What makes Blue Ash so "well-run"? We sure can't figure it out but that's what we've been told over and over again. We do not care how many Blue Ash employees get arrested for criminal behavior, we are declaring that Blue Ash is a "well-run" government and that's all you need to know.
We ask the tax-hiking residents of Blue Ash to not disturb their fine City Council with concern about these matters. Council is spending most of its time on important matters - like building a new performing arts center (30 feet away from Sharonville's), rebuilding the golf clubhouse, building a new superpark, and admiring the new $14 million Rec Center. What is more important than building new expensive toys when the economy is depressed? And best of all, these projects are being paid for by a very important 25% Income Tax Hike!
We applaud the Blue Ash City Council for having their priorities straight. Raising taxes and building expensive monuments is more important than lesser issues like the quality of the city's police force. We hope the Blue Ash City Council, and the city's residents, will not allow themselves to be distracted by safety issues like police and fire and keep their focus on what's important - building expensive monuments and raising taxes.
