A new local bumper-sticker has been spotted on the roads, byways and streets of the county, as the next election cycle for county commissioners nears. It reads: “2009- Lockhart/ Tome/ Demmler/ Hodge/ Mullin voted to raise my taxes and lost my vote.”
A couple of the Republican blogs in the county have periodicially addressed this matter as it concerned the last election, which resulted in Commissioners Mullins and Hodge being elected to the leadership position. On the campaign trail and in advertisements, they promised to hold the line on taxes, but when the realities and responsibilities of the office faced them they voted to increase taxes.
Here are the links on a couple of Republican blogs where this issue is addressed in detail.
