Our county commission has chosen to ignore the hardship of the citizens of Gwinnett County and voted to retain the present property tax mileage rate. Due to an increase in property values the end result is a serious increase in property taxes.
I am sorry to hear the news of Coach Bill Lloyd’s passing. I had the privilege of playing for Coach Lloyd at CollinsHill High School when the school first opened.
When reading the May 21 paper, I noticed that a lot of front page coverage was given to the Republicans running fo the Senate. I also noticed that there was one line given to the Democrats running for the Senate. I have looked through the paper and have not found another article about that Senate race.
The lack of knowledge about the FairTax is why we should all read and research info and decide for ourselves rather than accept our favorite politician’s opinion on important matters. If you can’t afford the Fair Tax book, visit the library.
What letter writer Vinson Hall fails to point out that there is a rebate on taxes for basic items such as food, clothing, etc., those below a certain income level will still pay no net taxes. He also overstates the amount of the tax, which is going to be closer to 23 percent. This tax is designed to be revenue neutral.
Rich will be well-served in this new position by his 22 years in the legal profession and justice system, which includes more than two terms on the State Court bench. His acceptance of this new responsibility demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the court system, which in turn helps fulfill the constitutional promise of justice.

Donald Sterling, owner of the NBA Clippers basketball team, is a bigot and deserves little sympathy but we should all be afraid of the tactics being used in the attempt to destroy him.
I have been in a committed relationship for 21 years. Because my partner and I are heterosexual, our marriage gives us valuable rights and privileges that we have come to take for granted.
I am all for the Camp Creek Greenway, if and only if though, the people of Gwinnett County and Lilburn specifically are willing to pay for it our of their own pockets and not get grant money from the Georgia Department of Transportation.
It was so refreshing to read about Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent on the front page of Thursday’s Gwinnett Daily Post. As Christians, our hope is in eternal life in heaven through the death and resurrection of Jesus, God’s only Son.
In response to the letter from Mike Bence praising President Obama for his ability to stand up to the plate and take responsibility for his actions like Governor Christie did, I say: horse feathers.
What plans are in the works to provide for the hundreds more vehicles that will be added to the already busy access to the Mall of Georgia and to destinations past the mall?
I am writing in response to Gene Wade’s letter to the editor in which he starts out defending Governor Chris Christie, and then proceeds directly to Obama bashing. He touts the “ethical” attributes of Christie, who threw his top aids under the buss, then took responsibility for the bridge closing, as if he knew nothing of it at the time.
