Well......I guess this isn't Ramona's time after all. Seems that her destiny has been delayed and her annointing didn't take. Just sayin'.

I've met Ramona Jackson Jones and know both her and Tom Worthan. Ramona is a precious and intelligent lady, and I do mean LADY. She and Tom Worthan both admire each other. If you get a chance to meet her, you won't be disappointed. She is a former Marine. She is secure in her own identity and is quite genuine. I'm sure that Tom Worthan would agree. Unlike his earlier tussles with the likes of Rita Rainwater, his campaign and Ramona's campaign were both run with dignity and selfless desires to serve the public. They are both great people. Actually, they are on the same side, and both seek to be responsible public servants. I'm sure we will hear more from Ramona as time passes and that's a good thing, regardless of party and race politics. We are in good hands with Tom so enjoy the benefits of having some competent concerned people managing the government here.

Taxpayer, you have an opportunity in this county to move forward, in ways missing for decades.

Not addressing what could be phenomenal foot paths, opening access unseen for a long time, is creating financial burdens on citizens, that include you and me. These are hidden costs. They are real. They require education to understand. The only way to oppose them, is to not understand the tab you are currently picking up, as a taxpayer.

You don't want to know. I don't blame you there, but don't believe for a moment, that you aren't picking up the tab, in Douglas County, when you do nothing. You are.

Open your belief system to include there is more then what we know, and just because all "looks" fine, that indeed it is. It is not. The symptoms are all around you. Nothing comes for free in this country. Freedom takes an incredible amount of sacrifice. It took me getting to over 50 to personally even understand freedom, and how we take it for granted.
Do not take freedom for granted. It is not free.

If you are complaining about TW creating foot paths, maybe TW is valuing access and freedom, just like me. Neither are free.

Well that was a great post of bs but if I wanted a foot paths or a park I would either go out my back door or go to one of the other 8 parks in this county. If that is TW's values that is fine, just don't raise my taxes (millage rate) to pay for all his values or get some votes (probably his district).

You might also want to read line 5 in this news article. Not only did DC have to search all over the US for a person to take a post that did not even exist (don't know what that cost)but now TW will have another reason to raise taxes to give this person a new location to direct over.

This is what a good chairman would be working on instead of dog pounds to help DC. But just keep on spending TW you will bankrupt DC yet. O, I forgot, he will just have another millage rate increase to cover his spending.

I think that both you and Tony should move out of the county before it goes bankrupt and leaves you both holding the bag. Maybe you could sell some more dope and save us from our doom.

Wanted to bump this up to the top so taxwhiner would not have a hard time finding it - since he will be blind with rage over the increase in taxes that were reported in the Sentinel today.

The article in the paper tells it like it is;

It costs $X to run the county government at while providing the level of services folks are used to. The money has to come from somewhere or the service level must go down.

As I donít want to disappoint any of my avid fans, the TW supporters.
So here is my opinion on your Nov. vote now that reality is going to set in.

Thanks to you Mr. & Ms DC voter.
You are going to get just what you ask for, Higher Taxes on your home.
I would not say ďI told you soĒ because I did. I said just as soon as you put TW back in office your taxes would go UP, & they are.
It should be noted here that you didnít have any budget increase in his election year, right.

After not getting the T-SPLOST (another TAX TW wanted). He is going to make you pay for it another way.
He (TW) talks about county services he says (you want). I donít know of any services here in DC that any other county doesnít have.

Letís talk about the ARC (Atlanta Regional Commission) him & his buddy M says you want (road projects). I think you told him in Nov. you did not want more taxes for road projects right.
DC will only have to put up 20% & all the rest will be paid for (80%) by the ARC. Now if you donít pay any state or Fed. Taxes that is a real deal. O yes,(DC) just leased its own paving equipment that will cost you thousands, meeting # 120412.
( Funding for transportation in the Region is derived from various sources on the federal, state, regional, and local levels).

http://www.atlantaregional.com/transportation...

As for the rest of the $41.6 million/46.56% of the budget is for public safety.
Donít guess any of that could be to cover any short fall in the sales tax SPLOST do you?
My only comment on this much money is, the DC crime/fire must be very high to need so much fire & police equipment for just 130k population. But I guess we need to spend that taxpayer money.

I donít know why I am telling you all this, as this is why you voted for him so you would have higher taxes, right.

This in MY opinion & I am entitled to it.
