Bull sheet!
The underground ain't big enough to dig any holes. The only holes I've noticed are in the heads of the 'underground.' LMAO
Oh, I made a hole-in-one today! My partners had to pay up and buy me lunch. See, that's the way we do it. Reward one another for a job well done.
Funny, no one mentions the underground unless it's in a joke about the people stalking Lamar.
Wow Rich,
I'm not much of a golfer but even I know the guy making the hole in one buys the clubhouse a round.
So I'm ready for that golf game anytime now I really need a break!

Here we go again. Did you read this weeks Q/A NGN 6/4/14 page 5a
Did Lamar Paris set YOU up again?
Q. Can the county afford to pay off SPLOST Bonds as well as the Urban Redevelopment Bonds?
A. Yes. We would not have borrowed the money if we foresaw any problem in paying it back.
OUR FINAL DECISIONS will be, do we complete fewer SPLOST projects and pay more on the Redevelopment Bonds ,
OR do we let our REDEVELOPMENT BONDS CONTINUE OVER THE 20 YEAR life (last payment is Aug. 1, 2030) they were financed under and COMPLETE MORE SPLOST PROJECTS.
This is a absolute no brainer. Look at the past history of the SPLOST FUNDS under Lamar Paris.
RECREATION, RECREATION, and more RECREATION.
Q. What would be the impact to Union County should the sales tax fail?
A. It would simply be devastating. Union County would stop in it's tracks. Certainly property taxes would increase dramatically, but that is not the worse. We would be in a permanent stand still mode.
Have you seen JUST ONE SPLOST project that has been built that would have caused this county to stop in it's tracks and put us in a stand still mode?
WAKE UP UNION COUNTY!!!!!!!!
He sounds more like Obama every day!!! If Obama, huh, I mean, Lamar has spent so much and put the county in debt so much that the county were to stop in its tracks, then that's proof Obama-Like Lamar is spending way too much.

Any county logo on the door of the vehicle? Another lack of county transparency similar to Obama's lack of transparency?

That doesn't cut it legally. If the county plate were so noticeable, then there wouldn't be a state law requiring a logo on the door of the vehicle unless certain conditions are met. Oh, I forgot, we have an Obama mini-me in this county. Oh, well, what's a "little" state law anyway.

There are several county cars with government tags sitting in the lower deck at the courthouse.

Most of the County vehicles just have a very small logo over the front wheel of the cars and not on the door.

Like I said before Lamar's remark was "If we don't like it sue him",

As a dictator he can do anything he pleases. We should all know that by now and by what he is doing with the SPLOST money.

Did you vote on a "MILL" a "BB GUN Range" "Chamber Remodel" "Batting Cages" "Camp Grounds" ect...

Are you seeing money spent on the transfer station?

Ore you seeing the debt being paid on the Multi-Purpose building?

No and you won't as long as we have a dictator running Union County!

It amazes me that he's so much like Obama in every respect, except color. He doesn't like criticism, he says, "Sue me,", he's belongs to the same Democrat Party, he talks about transparency but he's not transparent, he's a tax-and-spend Democrat, he stoops low to attack those that are not even political candidates, so on and so on and so on.

Does he think this adheres to the law, or does he just thinks that the "uninformed" won't realize that the small logo doesn't satisfy Georgia state law?

Let's not forget about another one that lies and is spending money needlessly. We have large employee wage increases, employee living off the tax payers, contractors getting job after job without bids, a commissioner that cheats on his own taxes while we pay higher taxes and the list goes on and on. Time to clean up our Counties of the good ole' boy system.

The Community Center was moved from SPLOST to Revenue Bonds.
We owe over 8 million on the Community Center, that includes the interest payments.
In this weeks NGN 4/23/14 page 5B Commissioner Paris is asking to borrow $10 million dollars more in General Obligation Bonds to pay towards the SPLOST 3 projects.
Lamar has received over 16 MILLION DOLLARS in SPLOST 3 collections. He has not finished paying off the 5 million in General Obligations he borrowed to start the SPLOST 3 projects in 2009.
We voted on but did not get the Expansion of the Jail or the Renovations to the Transfer station. If you were at the SPLOST 3 meetings Lamar said he would have to raise your taxes if you did not vote on these two projects. He said they had to be built with or without SPLOST. We did not get either one. What we did get was several projects not in the referendum built and more on the way. RECREATION is putting this county into debt.
Lamar needs to STOP ALL PROJECTS until he pays off the projects already built.
Spread the word. Stop the spending madness.
This is YOUR MONEY and YOUR DEBT.
The hearing for Lamar to borrow 10 million dollars is on May 5th at 9am in Superior Court. Where did YOUR 16 million dollars go?
David Hopkins put out a great informational newspaper that showed what is going on with YOUR MONEY and the problems with the county Audits. You can go on line and read the paper at: http://tinyurl.com/ngphye4
Letter to Lamar: http://goo.gl/32AnWV
Lamar still has not responded to David's letter.
Several of Lamar's reports are missing from the courthouse grand jury reports. You can find the information at: theacog.webs.com
STOP THE DEBT and OVERSPENDING.
And why are our taxes going up? You can't put them in jail, it's over crowded as it is. I guess this area has a long history of paying a lot to "snake oil" salesmen, Oh wait, my bad "snake oil SALESMAN".
