There has been much advertising, telephoning and editorial comment about the proposed 1 percent transportation special-purpose local option sales tax. This is exactly what it is – a tax. We already are taxed enough.
The Georgia Department of Transportation already has budgets adequate to cover maintenance and new construction. This would be sufficient if the powers-that-be would be more frugal and spend money wisely.
As I travel around and observe the various crews at work on the roads, I notice that there are so many people standing around doing nothing. If I had a construction crew, they would be performing their assigned jobs or they would be walking the streets.
I say vote “no” to the proposed additional sales tax!
