Mr. Tindall, I agree with you about the CLB members. I
think it is crazy to be allowed to vote yourself a raise. I wish I could. We
are retired, and our check doesn't allow for a raise.
The CLB members just voted in a new tax raise, which is
going to cost us $400 more on our property taxes. This amount comes out of our
check. I am like you all. These top dollar amounts that they say they are
collecting from tax revenue, where do they go? They put a large property tax on
us then they spend it giving everyone a raise.
People who are retired cannot keep paying larger amounts
of taxes just because someone in Cocke County wants a raise. People like Don
Hurst, who left Cocke County one time, is brought back with this big pay check
attached to him.
Those who would even think about a wheel tax must be
completely out of their mind. They have no respect for themselves or anyone
else. This is the problem with our county now.
I say collect the past due taxes from the people who are
not paying and are way past due. Our county is broke and this will be the same
story for next year. We need new CLB members.
Please people, get out and run to be a CLB member. It is
time for a change-a big change. These people do not know or do not care how
poor people live (middle class people-a good kind of person).
