Are police/fire/ems paid what they are truly worth in Gwinnett or any other county? No. Are teachers paid what they are worth? No. In order to pay them at a rate that is at least closer to the value they collectively provide, taxes would need to be increased far beyond the already crushing burden. Answers exist that would allow for increases, but those answers require both the prudent use of taxpayer dollars and less corruption. I suggest that the teachers, fire/ems vote in each election and vote for anything but the incumbent until the above is understood clearly by our elected freezer fillers.
For those living near the "Lasseter" school in Gwinnett, I understand that the trash haulers pay the residents to use their services. In addition, the county rebates 150% of taxes paid. And best of all, there is no corruption.
There was no such thing as a spending plan that MB did not like. And by the way, it's always the taxpayer's fault.
Agreed. This is about revenue.
An influx of illegals are needed to build Jenkin's new neighborhood, hence the taxpayer must pay. And pay. And pay.
The answer is a no vote for anyone voting for additional taxes. But that would require both an involved and educated electorate. The Gluttonous Heathens understand that they have little to fear in Gwinnett, so they continue to fill their freezers.
It seems to me the whole debate centers on ethics, at least to a large degree. In Gwinnett, there does appear to be an issue with ethics. 5 years is on the high side of retention--a fact. Gwinnett is challenged both ethically and morally--a fact. Should the two be linked? For the voter to decide.
I pull the sunroof back and salute the GSP each morning. The real truth is that the GSP presence is designed to SLOW traffic further in an effort to move folks to the toll lanes.
One REAL solution to traffic is to require immediately those involved in an accident to move off the roadway and then actually TICKET the drivers that need to be told to move off the road, but that would be upholding existing law and would be an impediment to revenue generation. The GSP is looking for any small fender bender they can find and they make the situation worse with the lights and will always block off additional lanes without cause.
........a bus and a taxpayer.......dollar signs in their eyes......
The same sandwich will also be offered for a limited time in Gwinnett but with an additional topping of shredded 20-dollar bills. This particular delicacy is aimed at those "leaders" in Gwinnett that, through their consistent criminal behavior, greed, and contempt of the public in general, continue to feast on the hard-earned taxpayer dollar.
