What things are happening in Oktibbeha County? Aside from isn't it FIVE bridges being closed after ignored warnings from M.D.O.T. roads in horrible disrepair, a major road in your district that has the traffic spread all along it, not in one cluster to be paved but the B.O.S. consistently disregards. The B.O.S. continuously spending millions of our hard earned tax dollars on report after report attempting to get what you want, O.C.H. sold! For this we get the "opportunity" to pay more taxes. STOP blowing our tax dollars on unlimited contracts with the most expensive legal firm in the state. Since returning I have seen no great changes, no vast improvements. Please, do tell us, your constituents who put the five of you into office what wonderful is happening that warrants raising our taxes. I am waiting....
