Huge Tax Increase for Lexington County?
Thanks to Talbert Black for informing us of this
proposed tax increase in Lexington County.
We are told Councilman Banning wants
a tax increase of $35 MILLION, and to make matters worse, does
not know how he wants it spent.
They suggest setting up a study committee to determine where they need to
spend it. They want it placed on the ballot, but you can be sure that they will
use our tax money against us to "educate the voters on the necessity of this tax
increase", after making promises of money for this community and that community.
They don't even know how they'll spend it!
Please call Bill Banning and your
Councilman and demand that there be no tax increase.
Do you know where your Councilman
gets his/her hair cut, buys gasoline, does business? Do these folks
know about this proposed increase? SPREAD THE WORD,

Would you say this is gouging the taxpayer?
What is the reason for a tax increase?
We are told that money is promised to county
communities to buy up their support for this proposal. Guess whose pockets
this money is to come from. Sounds a little like DC, doesn't
You will have the greatest impact if you call or
talk personally with your Councilman and also Councilman Banning. Let them
know that we understand what they are up to.
I am not much for on-line petitions,
we are also asked to sign the petition
against the increase at this location:
