Placeholder Image
Before the county's final budget work session at 7 p.m. Wednesday, the Newton County Republican Party will rally against a property tax increase at 6 p.m., tomorrow on the Square.

Elizabeth Christian, 1st vice chair of the local republican party, said the party opposes both increasing property taxes and cutting any public safety jobs. Sen. John Douglas (R-Social Circle) and Newton County GOP Chairman Ester Fleming will speak at the rally.

Christian said all taxpayers who oppose property taxes are invited, not just Republicans. After the rally, the rally members will go to the Historic Courthouse around 6:30 p.m. to speak to the commissioners before the budget meeting. No public comments will be allowed during or after the meeting.
