Sullivan is still whining about the county not having any control over rental properties in the rural areas of Johnson County.
Frankly, somebody's farm is not his property to govern.
Here's a quote from Sullivan as reported by the North Liberty Leader:
"The worst possible working conditions are when the person who is your boss also owns your house. When a person not only has control over your employment but also where you live, that's a deadly combo," said Sullivan.
Talk about insulting! According to Sullivan, if you let somebody live in a house you own in exchange for working your farm, you'll cause death! Rod Sullivan, a county supervisor, would have people believe that any and all property owners who give somebody a job and a house to stay in, are inherently evil!
And we let this guy write laws and tax us? And on top of that and his over-the-top generalizations, now he wants to inspect and fine us?
He's a control freak.
Let's turn this around on Sullivan....
The worst possible government conditions are when a county supervisor wants a multi-million bridge to nowhere, and he can also manipulate the rules and get taxpayer funding for it without needing to take up a public vote on the matter. When a government official has control over the people's agenda and also the people's money, that's a very taxpayer-abusive combo.
And I'm not saying all goverment officials are bad apples, not at all, but Sullivan certainly is. He's a pot-kettle-black kind of guy; he's a liberal - an acuse other people of doing the very thing he's guilty of doing kind of guy; he's a should be looking in the mirror when making those kind of accusations kind of guy.
We don't need to be giving Rod Sullivan more power and control over people, we need to take it away from him.
We can do that in November, he's up for re-election.
