You should have been at the commissioner meeting to voice your opinion. You don't go to the meetings you have no room to complain afterwards. Get involved.
This is your old friend HonestAbe- Will miss your comments Covingtonian

With the courtrooms being used only 170 days a year- Any judge that would let a serious criminal go for lack of a speedy trial should be taken off the bench. This is only a crutch used by the judges to get what they want when they want it.
No borrowing period. It's time for the government to do as we the taxpayers have done. Quit borrowing, cut back on spending, make sacrifices.
So sorry to hear this. Praying for his family.
This article shouldn't be about politics. I refuse to comment in that respect. I young man has died. Another one hurt. A 16 year old charged. This isn't a political problem it is a society problem. It's so much more important this day and time to train and encourage our youth who and who not to hang out with and the end results of making the wrong decisions. This responsibility falls on parents, and more and more on grandparents. I personally believe the best place for our youth to be trained to do the right thing is by good youth minister's in our church's. I feel for these families. I can't imagine what it is like to lose a child only 19 or to have a 16 year old charged with a crime this serious. I don't know what happened so we should give law enforcement the chance to fully investigate before making judgement.
Well stated John.
Douglas is the ONLY commissioner to vote against the tax increase. If you want to call it a dog and pony show to be the only vote against a tax increase then what would you call the other 4 who voted to increase your tax and against all motions for fiscal responsibility of the Newton County Government? I call it Douglas caring about the struggling home and business taxpayers of Newton County.
What does the BOC chair do? Why is he getting paid $89,000 with a county manager taking most of duties? As a republican who is supposed to be against tax increases and for taxpayers why did he not take a leadership roll in trying to stop this pay increase for the BOC? Instead as the poster above say's you with this paper go after with your article the only commissioner to let the citizens know this pay increase was coming.
