Is this the sales tax received by the city? This is only a drop in the bucket to the water and sewer fees they receive plus they also receive a percentage of SPLOST. Motel and hotel tax goes to DDA and business license fees and grease trap fees and the list goes on. A progressive and honest govt. in the city would do more for this county than most realize. It would take someone with a better resume than starting AA to run a city that is losing business everyday.

If the county is corrupt then the city has to be corrupt. It is run by the same people.

Yes, it's the city's share of the LOST tax. The city also gets a share of the splost tax.
City residents get a double rebate from LOST tax revenue. First the city gets to use the LOST money any way the city wants too, plus city residents get the same rebate as county residents do from LOST taxes credited on their property tax bills yearly.

Anyone read this weeks paper? The city is redoing the sign ordinance again. How much in legal fees have they spent trying to get into everyone's business? When they vote on an ordinance they all agree but then when election rolls around and it's going to bite them on the ass they reverse and spend some more money. Being attorney to the city is a very lucrative business in Blairsville.

<quoted text>I agree with you. Frank Pack is the perfect man to turn over the apple cart. The town of Blaisville could be heading for some major financial problems with all that they are taking on. Not that many people living in town for all the spending going on.

Most people are barley making ends met. How many Grants do you think they can get? Most will be coming out of your pockets.

We know that the current Mayor is just a "YES MAN"

Boy would things ever change if Frank Pack takes over. The Good Ole Boy system that has been controlling our town and county would all come tumbling down.

VOTE WISELY if you are ever to expect change in Union County.
Unfortunately frank pack was disqualified.

Look, stupid. That ordinance is because there are idiots out there that don't know when to stop. Hoyt's made a big @ss sign out of a couple of sheets of plywood over by Bank of Blairsville. Next thing you know some out of town yahoo will want the same thing for their business on Cleveland Street or Blue Ridge Street. Hell, let's just put some big damn billboards right on the square. Nantahala Bank installed bright @ss lights that light up the square so you could see it from space and then they stuck that God awful red LED light there like a circus attraction. We don't need downtown Blairsville looking like the Las Vegas strip. The time to nip that crap in the bud is before it gets started, not afterwards when it has turned into a cesspool of advertising. Bitch all you want but I hope they build a freaking bullet-proof ordinance that will keep people from doing what they ought not to be doing in the first place.

Is a Mayor really necessary? We haven't had one for 8 years and got by. Of course wew have been sued and lost many times and only God knows how much it has cost us. We have spent thousands on an airport that is useless to most of the county.

He was onle disqualified to run against Lamar because the ad which had to be run had to be in the paper on Tuesday and even though the paper was on the streets on Tuesday it was dated for Wednesday. This is how ole slippery snake Lamar works. There is nothing stopping him from running in the City election. New blood is needed for Mayor and Council.

So, Lamar personally made the ruling that Pack was to be disqualified? How did he do that?

No Stupid. Why can't you keep up. The Easter Bunny made the call and Santa backed him up. Lamar is a perfect honest and handsome devil. If you would stop hitting the suds so hard you could understand and keep up.

The Election Board made the decision based on the requirements and rules. The person disqualified did not meet the established requirements. Parris had nothing to do with it.

It seems that some of you want the rules to apply only when and if you want them to.

ACOG and MV should go after the city along with Lamar. With the city everything leads to the people who run this place and are willing to sell their soul for another dollar. The DDA is the key to cleaning up Union County and ridding us of the Corruption. Through the county they are in the background and you can't get to them. With the city their butt is exposed and it's time everyone saw just what they are.
