You got exactly what you asked for in the last City election. The people have spoken so live with it.
I'm working on a reaction story to the tax increases for a coming edition of the paper.
If either of you (or anyone reading) is willing to share their thoughts with me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
there should be no reaction. the counsel was spending money before the election like there was no end to what they can spend. and now they are going to make sure they don't run out of it so they can continue to spend it at there own will. the voters watched and complained about the spending before the election, then voted them in again. the people voted for it knowing what they would get. now they have to live with it.
Another city council in Hinesville about forty years ago started this mess when we brought in all of the subsidized housing.
It was done by a fresh new council with some young blood in it that was expected to lead Hinesville into a brand new future.
The results have been a steep decline in our society.
Can anyone spell TREE PROPERTIES.
Coincidentally about the same time (early seventies) Fort Stewart became an infantry training center.
Hinesville enjoyed the best of the good times as far as any benefit from having Ft. Stewart nearby during the days when it was a flight training center.
Bright young soldiers destined to become Officers coming wave after wave every ninety days.
After that ended it has been a downhill slide ever since.
I've lived here all of my life and believe you me the best of the good times are gone.
I do not understand how the Mayor and City Council think they should have a higher salary than much larger Cities in Georgia.
