— I wish our school system would do what some other counties do — have open house on separate days for elementary, middle and high schools so that teachers that are parents can go to open house with their children. If the parents have to set up meetings with their children’s teachers, that could be as many as 10 or more meetings.
— Fewer furlough days in the Griffin Spalding School System! Hire two more administrative personnel. Paid for, among other things “positive changes in the local tax digest”. Folks they think Spalding county citizens are not smart enough to figure that this is going to be a tax increase.
— I think America’s Got Talent should hold auditions in Griffin.
— Why do people knowingly buy and build near an airport knowing full well the risks and noise and then want to limit the airport expansion and expect the taxpayers to fund an airport in another location so as to get rid of their annoyance and give it to other people meanwhile taking other property off the tax rolls? It seems kind of short sighted I think. Then I think of all the money it cost to improve GA Hwy 155 from near Jackson Road school to North McDonough Road including new land acquistions for portions of this improvement taking more property off the tax rolls and now the city takes over 155 in town so the state can take more property off the tax rolls by making North McDonough Road the new GA 155 and ruining quiet neighborhoods and destroying peoples’ yards, etc when the current route is very sufficent for the traffic GA 155 carries. I will be voting against the TSPLOST in July as to me these two items are a total waste of taxpayer’s money and property.
