Just talked to 3 different people that had received phone calls from Mr. Douglas. Mr Douglas told those 3 potential voters that, "Mr. Strauss plans to raise your taxes." So much for running a gentlemen's campaign Mr. Douglas. Telling blatant lies is how he remains gentlemanly? We were warned that Mr. Douglas would eventually resort to dirty tactics - tactics he learned while running for five (5) differnt offices over the last 20 years. That's right, 5 different offices over the last 20 years. Who does that? I'll tell you, someone who desperately wants to be in politics by any means neccessary. Mr. Strauss will not, does not want to, and cannot raise your taxes (even if he wanted to). Mr. Douglas is speaking of TSPLOST which Mr. Strauss will have a vote on just like you will. One (1) vote so he cannot implement TSPLOST if he is elected to the commission. Mr. Douglas on the other hand voted for TSPLOST while he was in the Senate so he is more responsible for it than 1 vote in an entire state by Mr. Strauss. Unreal!!!!!!!!
