Last night’s COTU meeting was very informative.
The discussions were honest and open.
Trey Whitehurst was our speaker. It is clear he is a conservative and it is clear we need more council members who think conservatively.
We had one new member who is concerned about the Sister City agenda and wants the council to put this proposal to the people in a referendum.
The lack of high paying jobs in our county was discussed as well as the issue of those type of jobs always going to Greenville. The expense of contracting a NGO to bring high paying jobs here is not producing desired results.
Also discussed was the disappointment of our county having to go up on the millage rate and thus, our personal property taxes will be raised. Poor management and overspending is the root cause.
If we don’t show up in large numbers to the county council meetings ... nothing will change. The council will keep on this same path of not being conservative with YOUR tax dollars. You have no one to blame but yourself for apathy....
GET ACTIVE ... SHOW UP... SPEAK DURING PUBLIC FORUM!
The June primary will be here soon ... please show up at the polls and vote for TRUE conservative candidates.
Come see us at our booth Saturday at the Azalea Festival... we have good information on how to stop Pickens from becoming progressive.. Our booth is near the Courthouse.
