Mayoral runoff: Experience vs. changes

Decatur Mayor Lynn Fowler will keep selling his experience, while challenger Don Kyle promotes changes, the candidates said Wednesday as they prepare for the Sept. 14 runoff. Both face challenges that range from voters seeking change to a popular third-place candidate who endorsed the incumbent. Fowler, 71, a former BellSouth manager, is emphasizing his more than two decades of experience in education, business, economic development, and government, along with his accomplishments to maintain a high level of basic services and quality-of-life services.

Poll shows most chamber members oppose tax package

A group opposed to Gov. Bob Riley's $1.2 billion tax package is attacking the Decatur-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce's endorsement of the proposal, saying that stance is an unfair representation of its membership. The Decatur chapter of Citizens for a Sound Economy recently completed a telephone poll of chamber members that showed a majority opposes the plan.

'Grass-roots' tax foe

While complaining that a state tax-increase proposal is a blatant effort by special interests, a Washington, D.C.-based group refuses to disclose the identity of its own corporate contributors. Citizens for a Sound Economy Inc. and its affiliates historically receive millions from companies that benefit from the "grass-roots" political efforts. The group's latest aim is to defeat a tax-reform package that Gov. Bob Riley proposed.
