What is meant by raising taxes for better roads is this: a small rural county with alot of taxes and no jobs will run the poor man out and leave this town for the rich, retirement and recreation. Of course there will be a few on welfare left. Politicians of this county want it for retirement and recreation and will come up with taxes to help this process. What this statement is really saying is that they want to make better roads for Brimstone Recreation because the roads as is...is a problem for incoming traffic. The money for the road department is not properly utilized now. What makes anyone think that they will do a better job with the roads increasing taxes. Sure, they might do a little improvement on the roads, but most money is for the retirement and recreation. JUST LOOK AND SEE WHERE THEY ARE SPENDING MONEY NOW! Roads that concern Brimstone have continuous upkeep. Just travel them everyday and you will see. What we need is someone to run for road superintendent that has the county roads as their first priority and not just a few roads that concern Brimstone Recreation.

Noticed on knox news that the governor of TN has just given GRANTS worth millions to various areas near our county for roads/road safety. I don't think we got none, cause we didn't APPLY. If ya don't APPLY, ya don't get it, and our taxes go on up. Sames true for jobs.
