Civic lesson needed for the difference between Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem. Also, the City is not buying any towers. Don't let the facts get in your way - JustAnotherCitizen
Question to all you naysayers: say I contribute $50 to something and the return is $75 -- my investment has netted me $25. (e.g. I spent $ to make $). Now say that money given by the school system and others to Partnership Gwt has helped land NCR and many other large corporations with high paying jobs, that has (1) increased the tax digest; (2) increased sales tax proceeds; (3) increased other revenue, and (4) the quality of our community with equates to a net return exponentially greater than the initial school investment. Who is the winner and who is the loser?
Woodall: "Fairtax would remain my top priority". How about jobs, education, deficit reduction, reaching across the aisle? Much like his predecessor Linder, his main focus is on a fringe issue/idea with very little support even in his own party and his party's candidate for President. We don't need someone tilting at windmills.
If Delk, Belinfante, and the plaintiffs are genuinely concerned about tax payer dollars, perhaps they should reimburse Gwinnett and Fulton County for wasting money in having to defend these frivolous actions. What he refers to as a technicality, is apparently their inability to follow the statute when bringing suit.
