Face facts. Our governments, federal, state and local, have grown hopelessly corrupt. The less government we have the better. Without reducing government our nation will not survive.

LESS GOVERNMENT, MORE FREEDOM.

Really you should educate yourself on this issue before making a fool out of yourself. Gas Tax is based on the gallon not the cash amount.

SPLOST is based on a percentage per dollar. On $4 a gallon gas it is $0.08.

The thinking people of Camden County will vote to approve SPLOST VII. A handful of infantile "punish St. Marys Council" children will vote against it and try to convince others to do likewise. Fortunately VII will pass. People need to realize that Spencer and his brethren are by far the minority - they just scream the loudest. And it's all hysterical nonsense.
No logical person whines about the state of the infrastructure while preaching against the small shared tax (in place for almost 30 years) that will help to address the situation. And no sane person suggests that a historic building on a main street should be allowed to crumble.
It's guaranteed that anyone who votes against VII will be the first person to scream about their jacked-up water/sewer/millage rates and declining services if it doesn't pass. Thankfully, it will.

I don't know how you get it that the thinking people will vote for splost vii. I can think for myself. I don't need the St. Marys council or the Spencers to point out that each splost tax will cost me at least 200.00 dollars. I surely think the money will be better spent on my family. I think it is good common sense to vote against any tax when you have the opportunity. We are taxed enough without voting for a tax. VOTE NO SPLOST V11

Now take out your handy calculator and try to add up what double your water/sewer bill will be. Throw in a raised millage rate. Now add the cost for infrastructure repairs and then tell me why you want to pay for that yourself instead of spreading the costs around the broadest tax-base possible. Remember that 12-15% of SPLOST money comes from visitors and tourists. Thinking yet?

threatening to elevate water/sewer rates is your justification for voting for VII? How pathetic! So we should reward bad behavior by giving them money. Whether this passes or not rates will increase because the same jackasses are in leadership!

Jeremy Spencer is spot on! Vote NO against VII! The only way this real estate/contractor bailout will pass is if Martin-Jim oversee the voting.

The state has cited Camden how many times for voter irregularities/fraud? Do you really believe he intends to have a fair election this time? How will he and the GOBs control that office, if not

simply will not get done if
SPLOST VII does not pass,
but the city’s bond debt must
be paid. He said the worstcase

be another 35-percent increase
in water-sewer user

“I don’t see that happening,”
DeLoughy added.
“There are other ways of addressing
it.”

Such as reducing Government spending. The Mayor finally gets it why not you?

Vote No on the slush fund splost tax.

The only one desperate for SPLOST7 is the City of St Marys. The City of Woodbine and Camden County will be able to maintain status quo (no new equipment nor new roads, etc, but able to pay the bills) without SPLOST7, but St Marys is doomed. No idea if Kingsland will be able to weather the storm, so to speak. Why should citizens outside of St Marys feel obligated to help keep it afloat?

Splost VI funded the following Woodbine projects: Central Office Complex, courthouse parking, Emergency Operations Center, Fire stations, heavy equipment, jail expansion and other initiatives.

Splost VII will be targeted towards Woodbine's roads, bridges, sidewalks, water and sewer, drainage and flood mitigation, expansion of the waterfront, the downtown area, Riverwalk, recreation facilities, equipment, vehicles and land acquisition.

Kingsland's proposed project list for SPLOST VII includes:

Machinery and Equipment Loader with quick attachment
Road construction
Road repair/resurfacing
Sidewalk repair/resurfacing
Water and Sewer

Grand Total:$16,639,629

They will vote YES to VII. If you vote "No" remember to take your laptop with you so that you can stay on Topix while you're bottomed-out in a pothole on your own street.

Contrary to what you are saying , St Mary's is not doomed. The economy has put increased challenges on the city , but the financial stability of the city is strong. Stronger with SPLOST VII.

Splost 1 was specificly for CAPITAL PROJECTS outside of normal taxation.

Splost 6/7 All items that were once payed for by normal taxation.

How much with the passing of E-splost and Splost did your millage decrease by?

Do the math people. Follow the money to the land of special interest groups.
