Letter to the Editor: Aaron Katz nothing more than a large nuisance

I’m trying to choose words to best describe my initial impressions of the recent accusatory letter written by Aaron Katz against members of the Village League — let’s see arrogance, hypocrisy, self-indulgent stupidity ... can anyone else offer additional phrases of reaction to this man and his trash?

Aaron Katz is a man who has made a career of filing inane lawsuits, causing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars to defend or frequently settle his frivolous actions, sometimes just paying him to go away. The IVGID community is continuously facing a barrage of threats and a lawsuit from Katz.

Washoe County government and its attorneys had at their disposal an easy fractionally expensive way of settling their unfair taxing practices against the Incline Village residents, but instead, under the bullheaded leadership of another brilliant legal mind, decided to take the matter to all levels of the court system, adding many millions of dollars expense to Washoe County and its taxpayers. Millions and millions of extra dollars.

The Incline Village citizens who were over-taxed deserved a refund; that can no longer be argued. Mr. Katz, it is not the Village League that brought on the misery inflicted on Washoe County. Instead, it is the stupidity and arrogance of some self-serving members of your profession — lawyers — that cost everyone millions.

Who cares what warnings you offer, Mr. Katz? You continually rant, rave and complain of unfair recreation fees, insult and make false or inaccurate incomplete statements about individual members of IVGID. You state that you have filed or threaten more legal actions at every IVGID meeting I have attended.

Why would you think that anyone would care about what you say, never mind heed your warnings. Why don’t you become a constructive citizen of Incline Village instead of a large nuisance?
