High tax bracket

Melbourne, AR

#102 Feb 10, 2014
Im supporting new conservative opponents, conservative meaning someone with knowledge, leadership skills, Management skills.. Meaning you know what your job is and dont need to be told by someone UNELECTED what to do or what not to do. I want my Quorum Court and City Council in charge, taking charge as a TEAM, not being told what to do by some 3 piece suit or a skirt. LEAD! manage the peoples money period in effective way, effective meaning we the people see it happening, see it being reported, see hope for our community. Otherwise we keep the same OLD FAMILY TIES serving no one but themselves. I will be watching and Vetting and asking tough questions. If you dont have an opponent then you sure need to be questioned in a public forum or town hall, meeting other ....Gosh this is such a broken record,

I agree wholeheartedly. When you mentioned leadership and management skills, many people don't know the difference. Both are important and should be applied in most, if not all, situations. Everyone should thoroughly vet candidates about their capabilities and knowledge. Elected officials should always remind themselves of the fact: "Of the people, by the people, and for the people" applies to them.

"Of The people , by the people and for the people" Yes!

I have heard

"You may be elected by the people but that does not mean you do the peoples will"

A great example of "NOT following the will of the people"...
Although the voters of the City of Pocahontas REJECTED the council choice of ambulance service, the city council basically ignored that result, and chose the rejected ambulance service for a second time, how do you like them apples?

Its a trickle down effect from Washington, once they get into office they forget who pays their salary.

In 2013 Randolph County was #2 out of 27 Class two counties for pay scale on elected officials.

Our county has not balance our budget within our revenues in years.

Yet salary increase continues

We will have a few races in the local Democrat primary.
County Clerk....Justice of the Peace... Several Constable running this year.

There were people going to run for Treasurer and Circuit Clerk and backed out the last Minute.

This Court House is not the Democrat Court House or The Republican Court House. It is the People's Court House and the one who Holds any elected position now or in the future needs to know and accept that.

<quoted text> The first thing that is wrong with the county government is the automatic 3.5% yearly salary increase which is way above the cost of living.
Social Security cost of living increases have been around 1.5 % or even less.
Since the county can not even balance their budget, wouldn't it be nice if the Q court finally got down to earth and stopped this automatic pay increase?
A raise of 3.5% actually brings home about $15 -$28 actual dollars per month for most of the road department workers. You think that is way above the cost of living increase? You are uninformed. With increases in taxes, insurance, health insurance, gasoline, electricity, propane, water, food cost, are you kidding me? At least when you are on social security you are hopefully not trying to raise a family at poverty level.
