    Gwinnett County Facing New Tax Hikes

    10/13/2009

    Gwinnett County, GA residents have already gone to the mattresses over taxes this year - and won - but that hasn't stopped county commissioners from again trying to raise taxes.  FreedomWorks Georgia activist Debbie Dooley is again leading the charge along with Citizens for Responsible Government. 

    The Gwinnett Daily Post has a thorough story on the tax hike fight, Gwinnett residents, please note Debbie's plan to takecost savings suggestions to an upcoming town hall meeting:

    She encouraged people to send suggestions for cost savings and ways to generate revenue to gwinnettbudgetcuts@gmail.com. Those suggestions are expected to be discussed at the town hall meeting, slated for 7 p.m. Oct. 29 at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center.

    "We do not believe all the budget cuts have been responsible nor do we believe that all options have been fully exhausted before requesting a tax increase," she said. "The Board of Commissioners, to their credit, has demonstrated that they will listen when the taxpayers speak loudly and en masse. We urge them to listen to alternative suggestions from the Gwinnett County taxpayers before raising taxes by 2 mills."
