After reading this weekend's paper, I came away feeling very disappointed by the actions of some of my fellow Hall County taxpayers. Do you not realize that our local governments are just barely scrapping by?
We expect our leaders to be thrifty with our money, yet when they propose cost-saving measures that do not suit you, you threaten a lawsuit?
Our teachers and government employees are taking furlough days. Many of our citizens have lost jobs and homes. The tax base is shrinking. It is time for some serious soul-searching.
