NO. This county is at the bottom of all counties on per capti income and the employee salaries have been froze for years and we are losing good employees because they can get paid more. The property owners already have the highest tax burden in the state of Georgia. We are a one revenue county depending mostly on property and business owners to foot the bills. We can't afford to pay a Chairman and County Mgr close to $100,000 each per year as well as a county attorney a million a year for legal fees and millions to district 4 givaways. If they go through with this and continue to pay a million a year for legal fees NO COMMISSIONER- not even Douglas can claim being a conservative and all who vote for it should face a recall.
The only way these tax and spender will understand what the people want, is vote them out in November. Period.
Unless the poll changes all of a sudden it appears the BOC again have chosen to represent their own agenda and not the voters and citizens of Newton County.
