Furthermore, expressing the logic that having a tax for 30 years is justifiable to keep voting it in...what this does is create a false sense of a revenue stream when taxation becomes an unpopular correction to a stagnant local economy. And we have reached that page in this chapter.<quoted text>
That may well be the dumbest anti-SPLOST statement I've heard. So you plan to punish council by voting no and placing further burden on the taxpayers? Without a continuation of SPLOST (a tax that we've had for over 30 years) we'll all be crushed.
Lowndes County SPLOST failed the past Nov. and it will likely fail here especially after the State and the local Chamber's of Commerce advocated for a horrible projects list.
Again, we have the same government sycophantic ideators spending time and energy on campaigning for a tax. That appears to me to be the most idiotic platform to campaign on...campaigning for a tax. That is like a dentist trying to sell a root canal procedure to a bunch of old people with dentures.
