DOT budgets are sufficient

  • Follow Letters

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!

It's Real Simple

Just say no to higher taxes. It really doesn't need any elaboration whatsoever.

Politicians and their cronies are, by and large, crooks who already have (mostly) unfettered access to your checkbook. The last thing you ever want to do is to WILLINGLY give them more money that they will use to enrich only themselves and their partners in crime.

Tell these folks to use the money that they already have to improve the transportation issues.

Augusta homicides up, but no cases recently
Although Augusta homicides are up compared with this time last year, police say a two-month absence of any is proof that some of their crime initiatives are paying off.
