As if the property tax increase wasn't enough, here they come wanting more from us. Now they are wanting to raise the wheel tax.

These people really piss me off. All of them need to be out on their ass. We need some competent people that can manage this county. When it comes time to vote, I for one WILL NOT vote for any incumbent. It's time we change this problem and get rid of the problem makers.

Never heard of him, but visited his site. I probably agree with most of what he says, but he is way to vague. For example, don't say that you will cut spending without giving specific examples. We all want spending cuts, but I want to know if you have an actual plan.

There is another place on his site where he claims:

"Greene County has been restrictive on new businesses being able to locate to our area. Current businessmen are able to stop competition from coming in"

Again, it sounds good that he is going to stop it. However, do we know that current businesses have kept out others? Sure, there is innuendo, but there is little evidence of it. Fact is, the economy is tough, particularly on new businesses.

The last item that concerns me about Mr. Arrowood is the fact that he is an educator. The simple fact is that our county board is loaded with educators, and they protect their own. We need more like Kathy Austin and Deborah Johnson, whose pay isn't directly affected by county tax dollars.

No one can straighten out the school board I have even heard the remark from our commissioners that they are like a run a way train. Why do they rule this town? Because they can and noone will stop them

They'll get the idiots that kept saying we should of voted for the wheel tax and our property taxes would not be raised to push it. Truth of it is, when they raised the property tax, why didn't they raise it enough then? Do they have no idea how much we owe? No idea of how much the revenue would bring in? Then they took the money from the property tax hike and gave raises with it. These people are legal thieves.
If we just set back and let this happen, looks like it'll be happening every year.

You God damned ignorant fuckers. None of you are intelligent enough to understand that this county DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH REVENUE COMING IN to support the ignorant inbred people who suck our government dry.
The "big Government" push that this county has been on for Years has finally caught up.
If the people in this county would truly be innovative and capitalistic ( instead of lazy welfare demanding trash ), then we would not have such an issue with lack of revenue from taxes.
The arguments you stupid fuckers make regarding the school system and Dr. Kirk show how truly blessed the vocal majority is with retardation.
Go off and die!

sounds like an educator. They think the way the director and board handles the money is ok. That's a sure sign. Just my opinion . May be a board member? Obviously someone who benefits from all the taxpayer dollars.

Not all educators feel that way. I am a teacher and I am totally against more taxes. We shouldn't even have been talking about raises last year when others weren't getting raises and we were taking more money from taxpayers to pay for "the children." I think it is just crap.

You can buy your tag personally through any county in the state. It is a state tag not a county tag. If you don't buy a Greene County wheel tax sticker you are subject to a fine if you get caught. It's probably worth the risk. If you take your trash to a dump site you better have the Greene County sticker. Those guys seem to take their job real serious.

Vote for Josh Arrowood for County Mayor if you are ready for big cuts and reductions in taxes.

The Mayor can't raise taxes, it's the board members of the school system if they refuse to balance their budget like last year or county commissioners that raise your taxes! We desperately need good candidates in these positions!!!

Who was it that allowed waste dept employees to work a 32 hour work week and get paid for 40 hours?(That was because they couldn't give them raise.) Didn't that directive come from the top?
