A Good Showing @ 2012 Delegation Meeting


Dear Conservatives,  

Thanks for attending the meeting last night.  COTU was well represented ~ headed by President David Merck.  I counted at least 11 which made us the most represented group.  In combination with Saluda River Roots, I thought we made a formidable group.

We brought up a number of good topics … 
• We asked for repeal of the Comprehensive Planning Legislation as voted on by the Republican Party in SC.   
• We asked for elimination of the reassessment policy of going back 5 years to calculate "fair market value" of property so a steady stream of money could be provided for paying off the new school buildings; while causing foreclosures on homes in Greenville and Pickens counties.  It might be mentioned here that we are paying for the new schools being built in the 7 school districts, that won the case, that the payments to the dummy corporation were operating expense and not bonded indebtedness. ( This was presented to Governor Sanford and Senator Martin in 2009.)  I'll explain at our next meeting on the 12th at the church. 
• Lib Tickle, Mary Allen, Rusty Smith and Junius Smith pleaded the case for the people on Saluda River and I recommend that we never give up.  Keep on keeping on.
Thanks to Mary Beth Green for the info on Tennesee Forever Green.  I used it in my presentation. 
God Bless you all, 
Junius Smith
