Sens. Alting, Hershman Launch Web Site

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Influencing Indiana’s future may be just a computer mouse click away, says State Sens. Brandt Hershman (R-Wheatfield) and Ron Alting (R-Lafayette).

Senators this week launch a dynamic, new online “virtual office” bringing Indiana state government — its elected officials and agencies — as close as a work, home or school computer.

In a joint statement released senators said, “Communication is important as we begin the 2009 legislative session. I will be working hard to balance the state budget, protect education funding, permanently cap property taxes and continue job creation across our state. As always, constituent input will be both valuable and appreciated.”

Senators encourage Senate District 7 residents to log onto and Senate District 22 residents to log onto to access current legislation, view live hearings, provide immediate input and receive updates.

    First of all, I certainly agree with what Mr. Stonebraker has to say in the above comment.
    In addition, I would like to voice my displeasure of the Jasper County 3% income tax.
    How do our local Politicians justify a 300% increase when a good portion of the residents are retired and on fixed incomes?
    The State has reduced our Property Tax, then increased Sales Tax to make up for the reduction in Property Tax and then the County triples the County Tax!!!
    I, the Tax Payer, am a “loser” again!
    My pension can’t keep up with these increases. I would like to know what you can do do for me and the rest of the people of Jasper County.

    I just completed you 2009 Legislative Survey. As per taxes for the state and even the federal government, if you want a fair tax do it through a sales tax and drop all the other taxes. That way the people that have money to spend are paying the taxes. This is the only way everyone is treated equal. Do away with all tax except a sales tax and exempt most food items.

    As for question # 3 on the survey I do not think we should allow one person to appoint the officals such as sheriff, county treasure or any of the offices for that matter. That makes it to easy to get a corrupt government put in place. Let the people decide. There is to much of the good-old boy clubs established now.

    Mr Alting you know as well as anyone that this country has strayed to far away from the foundation this country was built on. We have no business bailing out any of these private businesses, or banks. If I make a bad decision I have to live with it. They should do the same. We should also go after the CEO’s that are running these businesses into the ground and walking away with millions. This would be a good place to use the RECO Statute and go after them and all the assets they have aquired in their decietful practices. If we don’t start standing up for what is right instead of what is popular we are all going to end up holding the short end of the stick. What happened to majority rule. We let a few outspoken people dominate the majority of the people. Don’t worry about being popular, just do what is right. I am not inferring you don’t, just keep the thought in mind.
