MORE TAXES…ANOTHER JCWSA BAILOUT?
Following is an
email from Comm. Cox. He, like the TWG,
is sick of bailing out a failing entity called Jasper County Water & Sewer
Authority (JCWSA). They have lived off
the government tit a little too long. No
matter how much money they are given they can not keep their debt paid up and
continue to go deeper in the hole.
many times is JCWSA going to keep coming to the BOC? Every year they come, again and again. They keep going further down and deeper in
debt, but neither Comm. Pennamon nor Comm. Bernard asked them when they were
going to quit coming and asking for money like they did the library.
Comm. Bernard said a few years ago they shouldn’t keep bailing out JCWSA
because they were bankrupt. Yet, he and
Ken McMichael, a JCWSA member, campaigned heavily together. TWG has been told that Comm. Bernard told
some people while he was out campaigning, that Brack Pound, JCWSA Chairman, had
contributed to his campaign. Now the reason why these two JCWSA members were so much
behind Bernard seems to make sense.
As Comm. Cox says, Comm. Bernard should recuse himself from any
vote on this issue!
See Comm. Cox’s
email below. TWG urges you to attend the
next meeting and call or email all the Commissioners and ask them not to vote
to bail out the JCWSA again!

Subject: More Taxes...Another Bailout.
They are at it again...Carl, Jack, and Charles are wanting to give your money
to a private company that is going broke. Sound familiar? Yes they want to
bailout Jasper County Water and Sewer Authority (JCWSA) again and they
want to put the fire hydrant tax back on you again. Remember the $52.00 per
year that I promised to get removed? I did get it off you just like I promised
but they are planning to do it again.
Jack Bernard's campaign manager was Brack Pound...Brock Pound is the Chairman
of JCWSA. Does that sound like a conflict of interest? To stop them you must
show up at the meetings and demand that Commissioner Bernard NOT VOTE ON
THIS ISSUE. Otherwise you will see that $52.00 again this
year and every year for the next forty years, Thatr is over $2000.00 from each
of you to a company that is NOT part of your county government. That is another
company being rewarded for making poor management decisions. Enough is
If he votes anyway, call the State of Georgia Ethics Commission
404-463-1980 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you wait it will be too late, Mary Patrict and I can not stop them with two
