COMMISSIONER REPEATEDLY BASHED AT BOC MEETING BY COMMISSIONER
made his point over and over and over
at the meeting Monday night that he did not think the Tax Commissioner,
Faulkner, was doing her job. He said
several times that she had failed to collect a million dollars a year and
that is the reason the county is in trouble.
He said this would be talked about in
executive session. Comm. Patrick
questioned how that could be executive session and Comm. Bernard told
was pending litigation. At the end of
the meeting Comm. Pennamon made a motion to adjourn and Comm. Patrick
agreed. This was not satisfactory for
Comm. Bernard, or Comm. Cox who all voted to go into executive session
discuss “pending litigation.”
the public can not say anything about Comm.
Bernard (or any BOC member) and what they don’t like about him or
does. He has them thrown out of the
meeting. BUT it is OK for Comm. Bernard to
bash the Tax Commissioner and even fellow board members.
His intent seems to be to blame everyone and
anyone for anything that goes on.
** To keep the taxpayers of Jasper County, Georgia informed as to where
and how their tax dollars are being spent.
** To keep the taxpayers abreast of local policies and laws being
discussed and enacted.
** We advocate more open government, less government spending, and
lower property taxes.
