Tax-spend officials need watching



Tax-and-spend Augusta Administrator George Kolb is doing it again. All he knows is to raise taxes and spend money. He has done this repeatedly since coming here. In addition, he has raised his own salary a number of times.

I have a question: Where has he saved one dime for the taxpayers of this city? All you ever hear from any city or county official is, "Give us more money to squander." You never hear, "How can we save the taxpayers money?"

We need an outside oversight committee to ride herd on this tax-and-spend group.
