Candidate can't cut taxes, class size



Regarding Clinton Chambers' Sept. 2 letter in support of Brad Owens, I'm not surprised.

Mr. Owens wants to reduce class size and cut property taxes. I think that is called "Charles DeVaney economics." Most people understand that you can't reduce class sizes and at the same time cut property taxes.

The educational system in Richmond County must be improved. Members of the Richmond County Board of Education must work together to increase the educational opportunities of all Richmond County students.

When perennial politicians like Mr. Owens run for office I hope voters will continue letting him best serve them as a member of the Animal Control Board.
