Interesting the mixed reactions I have received since my announcement. It is nice to have people smile, shake my hand and ask "how can I help". It is also interesting to see and hear comments about me which are uninformed and just plain incorrect.

Looks like there will be at least four people running for the Post which might mean a runoff in August.

I am speaking at the Republician Party meeting on Saturday April 12 at Family Savings Credit Union, 342 Charles Hardy Pkwy, in Hiram at 9 am. Please come by and meet me.

John,

I was wondering what do you see as the biggest challenge to our county at this time, and how would you like to see it resolved?

\Hello LPPT,Challenge is just another name for opportunity. As we grow there has to be a fine balance between services and taxes. We need the infrastructure to attract business therefore we need the revenue to accomplish the task. Sort of like the chicken and the egg. As of this fiscal year 1/4 of county revenue comes from sales tax, 1/4 comes from property tax with the remainder from charges for services, capital grants and contributions. What we want to do is decrease the percentage from property taxes and increase the percentage from commercial development. We will increase the commercial development by making Paulding County an attractive place to live and do business. Remember, we are in competition with all the other counties around us. We must stand out. As an independent voice on the Commission I feel that I can bring the experience and skills needed to accomplish the job and restore trust.
