Mr. Hales again purposes a county sales tax. Mr. Hales does not know how to use the words “cut spending”. He has voted for everything to increase spending over the past sixteen years. The cost of the county government is not the fault of the current new members of the board of supervisors.
Cutting cost of government should not only be done at the federal and state level but also at the county level. Approving a sales tax would not solve the problem. It only mean more spending.
To the taxpayers of Pearl River County, it is time to say enough is enough. Sixteen years of this big spending is long enough. John W. Sones, Jr.
