Fat chance health district dissolution will be transparent

Unfortunately, anyone thinking the whole process will be transparent, honest and result in what the taxpayers desire is at best naive.

Why not skip all of the pretense at the County level, and put the money into a countywide agency, such as the Sheriff's Office?

At least that way, the taxpayers would actually see some benefit from all of that extra taxation. Otherwise, it may end up in the county's general fund and disappear into the black hole called government spending!
