Make no mistake about it, the coming tax increase is tied directly to the funding of the new ballpark. The county may shuffle funds around so that the stadium does not directly receive any of this money, as new tax revenue can be used to replace redirected funds to cover the stadium. But, the result is still the same: the stadium will cause taxes to go up . . .What JC is describing is the deal for the Braves' AAA stadium in Gwinnett County. Given the lower dollars involved and suburban setting, one can assume that the men behind this fraud on the taxpayers aren't as skilled at hiding the financial truth as are their big city brethren.
. . . Though the commissioners play coy, their secretive actions indicate that they are fully aware that the path they have chosen will result in higher taxes for citizens of Gwinnett. If they are being so obvious in their deception on this issue, I wonder what is going on in other areas of the budget where the money trail is not so easy to follow.
Ask yourself: if there is this much nonsense going on in Gwinnett County, what's going on in Fremont? Or Miami?
