You probably all know that I write a blog around this time every year. I find it amazing that people will not open their eyes. How can you not see that our elected official run the county like "THEY" want to. You had, an notice I said "HAD", a chance to change things in the election. You chose not to. The County and City governments in Liberty County continue to run out of control. They have so much money that they have several new projects right in front of your eyes. Tradeport East is thriving. They are building bigger and better empty buildings out there. There will soon be a new emergency medical center at the corner of of tradeport east. The Midway Community Center is well on its way, I noticed alot of clearing of that old nasty Midway Elementary School. I am sure the County has other projects that are not quite so obvious. But I just wanted to point out a few very important projects so that you will understand why the County Need More Tax Dollars. I would have to say that you people and myself included, must dig deeper in those pockets So The People That Have Been Elected IN This County Can Spend More Of Our Tax Dollars.

If this was a stable community and did not have a large transient population, then things would be different. You have to be invested in your community in order to change things. People will complain but when it comes down to doing something as simple as voting, then they don't have the time.

All of you have made good points in this case.

"If this was a stable community and did not have a large transient population,

then things would be different."

If you don't have a vested interest in the place where you sleep, You don't share the tax burden of those who do.

I'm going to call out the 400lbs gorilla in the room. if everyone voting looked at what the people running for have done rather than their race, Hinesville wouldn't be in the mess that they are.

gacpl, you are absolutely correct.

And if everyone voting looked at what the people running for have done rather than their race, the USA wouldn't be in the mess that it is.

Having said that let me add that it is really not a racial issue it is a party loylty issue.

We have fellow bloggers who proudly condemn our local politicians for "JAMMING IT DOWN OUR THROATS" when they have proudly supported Obama and the national democratic and they too are "JAMMING IT DOWN OUR THROATS"

The first two of three public hearings on Hinesville’s proposed property-tax increase took place Thursday in council chambers at city hall. Though sparsely attended by city leaders and concerned residents, the morning meeting prompted some bitter public comments.
After opening the meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Charles Frasier welcomed those in attendance and asked City Manager Billy Edwards to explain the purpose of the public hearing. Edwards said the hearing was one of three that would allow the public to make comments about the proposal to raise the millage rate for property taxes by just under one mill.
“Where is everybody?” asked Hinesville resident Larry Boggs, who complained that too few community members attended the hearing. “How can you have a public hearing if nobody’s here?”

the community members that have gone to past meetings have noticed the patterns of the past with this mayor. the have a public meeting to make people happy, then he will bully the council members to give him what he wants, so why waste your time going. the only chance this would have been blocked was by not reelecting them.

The city manager was reported to have said that they used up the fund balance in order to avoid raising taxes for the past three years.

Did they vote themselves pay raises to be effective after being reelected?????

Then for the remainder of their current term they exhausted the fund balance in order to appear to be governing better than they actually were.

Sounds like fraud to me.

Can anyone spell recall.

Sebe what would it take to launch a recall of Mayor Thomas??????????????

They bought pipes, and other material in 2009 2010 for the reclamation project that failed for $300,000.00 and then sold that material for $10,200.00. Is there no accountability. That is just wrong!
