Three-decade Oakville citizen says new county ‘not the way to go’

To the editor:

The steering committee — Republican Party — wants a new government, Oakville County?

I thought that is what the Republican Party is so adamant against. New additional taxes, new police force, county hall buildings, elected officials’ salaries and perks, lobbyists’ influence, just to name a few of the headaches that a new county breakaway will bring. The monetary cost for this adventure will be astronomical. As a three-decade resident of Oakville, this is not the way to go.
