I would agree the penny tax is a benefit. However, the consept is bad math. Look at this. Collect the penny, build schools, fire stations, libraries, etc. with it and then there is not enough money in the county budget to run it or staff it. The county commissioners just voted to approve a new budget. It had drastic cuts in it. Why would any one in their right minds want to build more schools, etc. if they don't have the money to run it now? Come on people. Put your thinking caps on. Change the system or cut it.

In November, Gwinnett residents will vote on a penny sales tax to help fund ongoing capital projects in the schools systems in Gwinnett County.
