Last year the Pickens County school board overtaxed residents by $1.6 million. By law the money was to be refunded to the taxpayers however they decided to keep it and not raise taxes in 2007. They justified this criminal action by claiming “substantial compliance.” School superintendent Dr Lee D’Andrea now says taxes are going to be raised significantly – so much for “substantial compliance.” This recent action not only makes them untruthful but criminal.

Dr D’Andrea is also claiming that overall, taxes are going down. The truth is that taxes were lowered through State tax relief. She and the board are simply “stealing” a little less than the state is giving back.

Finally, the D’Andrea led board hurriedly passed a $315 million spending plan to beat a deadline that would make it illegal. This board is not only dishonest and criminal, they are devious.
