Since Mayor has a county job do you think he would come out against tax? Do the rest of the 81 counties have a county tax? No they don't..Time to cut back..Get rid of Supervisor's truck as they have a county manager to ride the roads..Instead of buying new sheriff cars put that $$ to better use..

A 1 cent county wide tax that would only be incorporated in Picayune and Poplarville? HUH? This article is so badly written that a truck could be driven through it. What is the tax going to pay? Why is it necessary?

Why is it necessary? Because our county leaders got drunk on FEMA money and overspent stuff that had an reoccurring debt..I say fire them all..
