Can't Agree with you on this one. Wendell Bullard has collected the Taxes for the County. I don't feel that the current commissioners have used this money properly that Bullard has collected, but I must say Bullard has done his Job. I too, have paid alot of taxes, but everyone else should pay them too. My Vote will be for Bullard

What is your beef with Mr. Bullard? His job is to collect taxes, and that is what he has done. He has nothing to do with the millage rate or property appraisals. He gets my vote also.

True he did collect the taxes but he told people they couldnt make payment and they are the older citizens that didnt have it and some people that has lost there jobs and was in a bind. Then at his so called sell for taxes the guy that had came down to help or do it told him u got to aleast get the taxes owed to sell these he said "WE WILL DO THAT NEXT TIME" we done sold these and it was the same ones that has bought all that come up but if anyone else bidded they had to atleast bid enough as the taxes that was owed. That is why we the poor citizens has a problem not that he collected taxes but how he treated people about it in a year that the ecomony was at it worst!!!!! And right if he hadnt of done it that way and collected it quickly like he did then the commissioners wouldnt have had enough to waste for non sense. Over paying for stuff and such.

The only time that property is foreclosed on and sold for tax purposes is when the taxes are due over several years. There were many people who had unpaid taxes over several years. We elected Mr Bullard to collect those overdue taxes, and he simply did his job.

When property is sold at a public auction, there are strict guidelines that must be followed, and there is no room for discriminatory behavior.

Times are hard for everyone, but taxes are not something that you can put off paying for several years, just like rent. If you miss 2 or 3 rent payments, see what happens. The taxpayer is given plenty of opportunity to pay the back taxes before this type action is taken.

What the commissioners do with the county's money has absolutely nothing to do with Mr Bullard or this discussion.

Well said Jeepers, help spread the word on this in Wheeler county!
Paying taxes in Wheeler is something you don't HAVE to do! I was told after seven years it drops off per year so the most you would have to come up with was seven years of taxes even if you hadn't paid them in twenty! Bullard does his job like the people of Telfair county elected him to do! One day, and it might not be this term, but alot of people in Wheeler will be scrambling to come up with seven years worth of taxes! OLE WELL, THE TAX MAN WILL COMETH!!!!

I agree, Mr. Bullard has done his job. We elected him to collect taxes and that is what He has done. You might could go to the commissioners meeting and ask them what they are doing with taxpapyers money not that any of them have the decency to answer anybodys question they sit there like a stump. There is a preacher and a Deacon, One welfare recipent if not 2. They all claim to be Christians and You wonder why You go by Churches and so few cars. Look at what is representing the Churches. Judgement Day will be for everybody even the ones that pretend to be Christians when they want to get elected. The Bible speaks plain all the way thru GOD is the Judge want matter what office you served to get your hands in the pot. Got some more just like them running for offices
So get out and Vote and send these senior citizens home where they belong and let some younger people have a chance. Some of the ones already humped over so they cant see where they are going. This may seem cruel but the truth is Taxpayers are sick this bunch and if you hadnt bought your way in u wouldn't still be their. Your still there because You are GREEDY. Drawing SS, Retirement, and county check hard for greedy to give up.

Country boy fresh and lovin the people are so right...NO..He did NOT wait years and years...I can speak from personal experience. He is like most people in Telfair that get into office..he gets there, gets a big head and then forgets the people that helped him get in office. So glad - according to Georgia Elections site - this jerk is out of there! Yes he collected taxes, but even if you speak truth (or act on it) in the wrong way, you might as well not speak it! He could have had more compassion on those with issues...he certainly has for his favored few!

I ususally dont rant but good lord we are the most backwoods, ignorant, already the bottom county in the entire state, just plain stupidest voting general public I have ever seen. Why in world would we remove someone actually doing their job buy the letter of the law and vote in a known theif. She stole from the county several years ago, it was swept under the rug by the officials at the time and allowed to keep her job, retirement, and apparently the privilage to run in an ellected office she stole from. It's time to put my house on the market and go pay taxes anywhere but the most backwards county in the state.

Well Windell did not get re-Elect, but it was not because the people did not go vote, but it was because some one made sure that a lots of write in votes that probably was not legal was counted. The same thing happened in the Lumber City commissioners race. I would really like to see the write in votes stopped, for the simple reason certain people use this privilege to get elected, when they know they can not get elected any other way. This is just my opinon.

That all goes back to this dumb bunch of commissioners Mr selph, Ms Dollar they got something out of the money she sued the county for. Under the table and commissioners should have never allowed her back in no office after stealing and suing the county. What does it take for the people of Telfair to wake send the rest of these commissioners that are pretending to be christians HOME. One is gone if You dont wake up Telfair We are going down. Put some young people in there and give them a chance they sure cant do now worse than the ones we have had for the last 10 years. If you retire from the county you should be made to retire not keep working drawing retirement and ss. One thats in there now looks like she ought be in the rocking chair at home. What will it take to get this greedy bunch out and where they belong.
