VOTE YES ON BOTH TAX PROPOSITIONS TO HELP OUR COUNTY!

Pick up a flyer that's available that will explain exactly how important this tax is to Pemiscot County.
This tax will be mostly paid by out-of-county travelers due to the 2 major interstates coming through our county. AND due to WE the citizens of this county travel to other cities to shop DESPITE PAYING HIGHER TAXES THERE.
Shopping local will ONLY generate $1.25 PER 100.00 spent!!! We all spend way more than that shopping out of town as I know I sure do!$1.25 for every $100.00---THAT IS NOT ALOT!

ANOTHER FACT most citizens are unaware of is All vehicles used by the Sherrifs dept are purchased solely from the Law Enforcement Restitution Fund! Which is monies from court costs paid by criminal defendants!!!

We already go to neighboring towns and pay higher taxes. If both tax props pass it will bring avg sales tax between 7.975%-8.975%. We travel to Dyersburg & pay 9.750%! And Blytheville & pay 9.500%!

Only makes since to raise the sales tax in Pemiscot County and take advantage of the major interstate system that comes through which will generate much needed money for our county!

Pick up a flyer and read the info! Educate yourself! This county is going to decline if WE AS A WHOLE don't do something! VOTE YES!

Don't Vote Yes for this. The County has either Stolen or blown our money. You walk into the Sheriff's office and ask to speak to someone, and all you get is, we are to busy to help or talk to you, and you can hear them on the other side of the wall laughing and having a good time. Heck the Sheriff Don't even live in the State of Missouri anymore..
If you want to get extra money so you county commissioners can have your fields, and ditches clean and leveled, Get a Job like the rest of us and get off the county, state, and Federal funding's and become a poor working person like us......

Well you're an idiot. Why start such stupid lies? Anyone that lives in Hayti can tell you he lives in Hayti. His house is behind the hospital and he does not have a house at the lake. Quit starting nonsense.

LOL. Tommy is not a thief! Many a sheriff in our county have had claims made on the bond that secures the position of sheriff, but not Tommy. If U have a cell phone U pay no 911 tax on it, just land lines. That worked great in the beginning but now more cell phones are in use and fewer land lines. My adult kids only have cell phones and have the service but do not pay a tax for 911 service. Our MO legislature has dropped the ball not authorizing taxing cell phones for 911. THEREFORE WE MUST TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES BY VOTING FOR THAT TAX.

The other tax issue before us is not pretty either, but is a must. Without this tax, the jail cannot operate. We are now paying a small tax for about 3 more years until it's paid for and that tax comes off! If this tax passes the cities will no longer pay for dispatching and will help them.

As far as all of the new vehicles for County, Hayti, & Cville.... This asset forfeiture money from the government is on a cigarette bootlegging bust. Cville got $1,000,000 and County got less than $1,000,000. Unfortunately the govt only allows purchases of equipment NOT salaries or benefits. That's why ALL the new police vehicles .... they are NOT using our money. It's not fine money, but asset forfeiture of the crooks caught. And the govt wants the money spent now!

For SURE vote NO on the hospital tax. PMHS had their chance, but it's the same upper management and the same old story. Trying to save face any way they can but they don't realize they are the problem. It's time to let this place die.
