Hi Sheran. You b referring to the forth coming tax increase?
If so, that is why I have been liquidating some property since prop. taxes cannot be stopped and we do not seem to be able to vote them out for gross mis-management of our dollars. They mismanage and we, the property owner, pay for their mistakes.
I, JimmyMack, a liberal Democrat, voted for Jason Floyd a Republican when he ran for office hoping he would stand stand firm fiscally speaking on local issues.
And Sebe, you are right, he cannot have it both ways. I am disappointed in Jason's vote.
They should not be able to have it both ways.
However that is exactly what they have had for about the past ten or so years in Liberty County.

Well you have that as a candidate for Mr. Lovett's seat on the county commission.
sebekm, since I took off to attend the last counsel meeting, I can tell you what REALLY happened. First i was shocked that there was more time invested in debating the new grievance & appeal process than the increase of taxes, utilities etc.
Counsel has not yet approved increase in property taxes.
Mr. Shaw -out of my district- did ask if Seniors would be exempt,but what about the rest of us? I guess that was not important to Mr. Shaw......Once they had to vote on it, Mr Floyd like a race horse coming out of the starting gate, gave his vote for "yes" quickly followed by Mr. Fraser, Mr. Shaw and Mr. Anderson. The only one that voted against it was Mr. Jenkins......once again the majority of them never once raised the concern for their constituents. Keep calling them, keep demanding that they need to represent you!!!!!
And by the way, you dont have to wait till election, you can get them to work for you now or you can get them out before election. (by gathering enough signatures
Ya'll can harp all you want about the Hinesville council but there is nothing you can do until the next election other than what sebekm suggests above.
The process is called recall petition such as what the folks in Wisconsin tried on their governor.
I think one could just maybe be done on Mayor Thomas but I'm not sure.
There was a group in the county a number of years back which achieved some success but I've seen or heard little of them in recent years.
I've seen no discussion on this site about the special election to fill the seat of Chairmen elect Donald Lovette.

Frasier is indeed part of it now.
And I'm afraid that he will win that race.
Watch for pay raises for the Chairman and board of commissioners .
It may happen before the end of this year, if not it will just as soon as they get the right people in there.
