I am not at all surprised. When you spend like a drunken sailor on his first shoreleave what do you really expect to happen?
And they still had the audacity to "possibly" opting to raise our millage rates to further compensate for their mis-management. AS I said before on these pages and in the Coastal Courier...that unless we vote them out it will only get worse. If we cannot get them out then every orifice on our body is subject to violation, not to mention our wallets down to the clothes on our backs.
I've lived here all my life except going off for some learnin' and this is the worst it has ever been and getting more so.
Their plan to deal with the budget deficit calls for a tax increase of 1 mil. They didn't ask me before they built the Taj Ma City Hall, or spent $10 million on "Bryant Commons", or bought all those ghost busses, or took a trip to China, but now that they have spent a million more than they have in the general fund they want to raise my taxes to pay for it all? Come on guys. Just call your buddy in Washington and have him print you some more money. It seems to work for him.
Yes they did ask you, The people of Hinesville elected them to spend YOUR money as they see fit. The only way to change it is to voice you opinion, here does no good, and vote them out.
But then again during the last election, the same people everyone complained about WON.
Hinesville has become with all due respect to our military men and women, a transient Army town with no soul except for the almighty realtor dollar bill.
The three Taj Ma Halls and all that work for them and kin to them and owe them a favor have taken Hinesville hostage.
We are out numbered. And I am a local.
At the risk of offending our military retirees who participate on this site, Jimmy Mack you are absolutely correct in every letter of every single word of your post above.
I say DITTO.
