Baltimore Council members urged to support local businessess


Baltimore residents need to know that Village Council is having a meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 5, to discuss the controversery over the next village income tax administrator. Council is evenly split over whether they will support a local


business and use Winfree, Ruff & Associates or keep Fentress Group based out of the Worthington area.

I urge all residents to attend the meeting to show your support of your local community and your local businesses. Supporting local businesses will bring money to the Village via employment taxes, increase local employment and keep this village sustained. Village officials need to stand as an example and support the local businesses so that the residents and other business will follow their leadership.

Again, I urge your support of Winfree, Ruff & Associates to serve as income tax administrator for the next four years. This decision makes good economic sense.
