Okay - remind me again why it was necessary to have a County Manager plus a Chairman and commissioners ???

Maybe the reason the BOC is "looking into this matter" , is because someone, other than the board (and their highly-paid legal adviser)- did their homework and did not let the matter be pushed under the table. "What say you County Attorney".....I think we could find better prices charged for legal services for the county.

Agree, agree, agree. We pay the highest SCHOOL taxes in the state, but have less educated children. NO more money from me. If I could give less, as a Senior Citizen - I would immediately. Do not fall for this farce.....

livingart 2 years ago on Newton school board approves call for SPLOST election

NO-NO-NO- Education taxes of the county taxes are at the TOP scale in the state already. Better education or improvement in personnel or educators has not greatly improved since I have been paying these overly high county education taxes for 35 years. The more monies these people receive; the more money they squander. I live on a BUDGET....Why can't they.

If this employment of mother/child is border line or in question, why not put employee in another department. If one thought that this would cause a controversy about family working with/for employer - why push it. I am sure there are other employees of the county that really need jobs.

Well said - I do not live in the city, but I have tried to go through several times with the "filming traffic" I avoid when I can...I think the reasons for the filming here and in GA have something to do with lack of taxes and expenses that are not imposed on the companies coming to this area....

$25 million - really - Have you rode down 278 lately, have you tried to buy a decent pair of pants or nice shirt, or have to tried to take your family to fun activities or entertainment on a regular basis....Maybe you and I have different wants and needs.....just saying..

Well said - this attorney and his "gainful employment" has gone on way too long; and why did the voters of the county not have a voice in the manager position ???? Maybe we should have a voice on both accounts.
