He even said he was “disturbed” that the county has debt from 2007, on which not a dime has been paid on the principal. Well, where has he been these past eight years?
I guess he has an excuse he was too busy raising our property taxes (the largest increase in Washington County modern history), donating $1 million of our tax dollars to East State University performing arts center, spending thousands of dollars on a voting system for the County Commission and casting a vote for a methadone clinic in Gray against the wishes of the neighborhood. The list could go on.
I urge the voters to remember who is looking out for taxpayers and who is not. If your commissioner has voted to tax and spend — kick him out in 2018. That’s what I plan to do.
