Wish I could, JW.

Bobby McKenzie is an old man from Whitesboro. His only issue is getting the roads "fixed" and has promised if elected he will give back his first year's salary to the county for repairing the roads in District 3.

Ceb Scott has worked for the county for quite a few years. I think someone said 22 years. I have also heard he will be no better than Freddie Cox. Ceb got in the race because Freddie had said he would not run again, then changed his mind.

What most people do not understand is the County Commissioners are responsible for much more than keeping up the roads. They are responsible for the whole county budget.

Most people also do not understand that money for our roads does not come from our State Income Taxes, local sales taxes, or property taxes. Money for our toads comes from fuel taxes and nothing else.

Fuel taxes are collected by the State and redistributed back to the communities. Of course the State takes a cut of that money for administration first, I would imagine, and I have no idea how to find out how much of what we pay in LeFlore County in fuel taxes comes back to us.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
