Lady donít blame all your problems on the outsiderís Lamar and Lee Knight are localís if they are the oneís screwing you over than thatís who you have an issue with period. I was born and raised here also. So I guess you built a pole barn? And now they are taxing you? I dont pay taxes on mine if thatís your issue. Itís not considered as square footage to my dwelling due to it being not livable space and not subject to tax. They probably just dont like you because you complain to much.

Join the activists who are working to block the next ESPLOST. TSPLOST was blocked by citizen activists and prevented our taxes form going to 8%. Blocking ESPLOST will reduce our taxes to 6% and set the precedent for blocking the SPLOST slush fund.
We must stop "building" as the down years debt service and maintenance on the "building" will bankrupt the county and the taxpayer.

Dummy! She/he was talking about the "Poles" over at Lamar's wonderful acreage/farmer's market area. And YES, YOU are paying taxes on those open "poles." You are too stupid to realize it with the maintaining of everything.

Oh Pleeeasse give me a break, Lamar builds an extravagant bridge on County Property and you all want to have a coronary. I am sure he will just charge vendors some more $$ to offset the cost. Thatís what he does every time they do a upgrade at the golf course. He screws the memeberís why should you think you are any different.

I have only lived here 20 years but lived in the south for the last 63. What I see here (Union County) is just typical, but archaic, good ol' boy southern politics laced with the typical graft , greed, and corruption. I have had the conversation, one on one, and made the point but also pointed out that we were now in the 21st century and it needed to stop.
It is time to consider a multi-commissioner commission, split the sole commissioner's outrageous salary in thirds (or less), send the current "county manger" down the road and hire a competent manger with his outrageous salary (or less) and perks.
One could only hope that at least one of these new duly elected good men and true would have ethics and rat out the others if they attempted a re-run of the previous graft, greed, and corruption.

If you want all our problems solved you should try to draft Pat Malone to run for commissioner:

After a round of golf, I saw Lamar "sign" a ticket in the grill at the golf course. I imagine that the taxpayer pays for his burgers too at the "Club." We're feeding the beast!

Towns County let Stancil, the City Manager steal tens of thousands of taxpayers dollars He already was paid a salary of 98K to manage a town with a population of under 1000 He is one of the cronies in the local.good Ol" boy system here. If any of us common tax payers committed the crimes that he did we would be tarred feathered and thrown under the jail. Our local government chose to fire him and let his acts go unpunished. Why isn't the GBI investigating him? No one even seems to be upset that this lawyer stole their hard earned tax dollars. The local papers have retrieved concrete evidence of this through open records request and decided to not report it

Union County District 4 School Board Candidate:

Mr. Bill McQuillan lives in District 4 and will be challenging incumbent Keith Potts and John Strickland. Bill is a retired CPA. He also holds a law degree. He possesses the knowledge and intellect helpful in leading the district in wise financial decisions and has pledged his commitment to being open and transparent with the taxpayers.

She has a daughter who teaches in the Union County Schools, and three grandchildren enrolled here. Joan has school board experience, having served on a large school board in New York. Joan has a commitment to openness in school board meetings, allowing the taxpayer to speak without censorship.

Malone is far from corrupt. He is a born leader and advises major corporations on leadership. He mentors our children and is the news sources for North Georgia. he does far more in 2 hours each day for North Georgia than you Oath Keeper do in your entire life. Union County should consider itself lucky if he would take the helm
