I just finished reading some of the county budget and have to ask why do they make it so hard for you to get a copy?

Why isn't it on line?

Why did Bob Sprinkle charge me almost 5 dollars for it, its supposed to be free under the freedom of information act.

Why do they act like it takes research, its on a computer program that takes them 5 seconds to produce the reports, yet they almost threaten you with supposed fees of hourly rates.

Why do our public servants think we work for them?

Why is there so much money be spent on TRAVEL?

outside sources?

In the two or three years I've visited this site, this particular blog is the single most important one I've ever seen.

This blog site should have more of this sort of probing commentary.

Thank you.

If we will start to ask questions and demand answers we can bring about change.

I respectfully disagree Jimmy, what we need to do is get them to resign before they do more damage. We can do that if we investigate enough, dig enough, and make enough noise. If they don't leave after you expose them, they will certainly leave when we vote them out. They need to be held culpable for everything they do, its ridiculous when a voter ask to speak to a representative because I have personal grievance I wish to address with my representative, that they act indignant. Or at least they can pretend to read your letter! LOL

Jimmy is right on this one; there are plently of people that complain but for some reason can't get off the couch to vote in order to voice their displeasure. Apathy always wins and is normally not for the good.

YEs and they count on us to forget come election time!

Its time we Americans took our country back one vote at a time!

I agree with tot also. I'm tired of Liberty County/Hinesville politicians. I'm not from this area but I consider it home now. I've learned that it's not what you know but who you know in this area. If you upset one person in this town they will try and black ball you. I know a young lady that asked too many questions, challenged an appointed official and had to leave town. Tread lightly.

You might want to consider retiring outside of US too. Nice areas in Mexico, Coasta Rica, many other areas where you can stretch your dollars at least until it collapses!

I just read through more of the budget, its really ticking me off. How is there INSURANCE as much as their payroll? Does that make sence to anyone else?

Now Im not talking about witholdings, Im talking the county paid insurance, we pay with tax dollars!

I agree but he was a strange bird to begin with, he wanted a communist government. If he had just waited a few years he could have seen our government and he would love now!

I just think our government is no longer working for us, but against us, and they act like they are the Administrators and not us. Wrong view for government officials UNLESS your in a socialist counrty, are we?
