Tax dollars spent without public input

0

Larry, I’ve been a resident of Roswell for nearly 26 years.

I’ve raised a family of three children here. I’ve created numerous jobs over that period of time.

I’m a naturalized U.S. citizen. I pay more taxes than I’m happy about. I haven’t been politically associated for over four years.

I have and always will support the candidate with the highest degree of integrity regardless of party affiliation.

When I see an administration spending my tax dollars without public input, I’m compelled to speak up, as any concerned citizen should. Now I hear they spent $35,000 for a consulting firm to come and pitch an upgrade for the zoo. Another potential multi-million dollar project, and the consulting firm suggested that the city impose a tax increase specific to that project, to pay for it. How deep do you think our pockets are?
