With all the new revenue from Stillwater mine, the new Subdivisions, and the high-end homes, by now Sweet Grass County should have a balanced budget. Instead, the County still has a $2,206,330.00 debt, and we’re paying over $100,000 a year for interest on this debt. That’s over $100 per year per family in the County. THAT DOESN’T EVEN COME CLOSE TO RETIRING THE 2 MILLON PLUS DEBT!!
Let’s VOTE Bill Wallace for Commissioner and give him a chance to make the best use of our tax money. He can get a lot of bang for our buck. I trust him to make our dollars go as far as possible. We need more Conservative Leadership in City, County, State, and Federal Government offices to rein in the spending. I wanted to point out how important it is to have a Conservative as our Commissioner, some one like Bill Wallace.
Enclosed with this little note is a letter that I personally wrote and mailed to Philip Hathaway (see previous post) on October 1st. There is no malice or lies in my letter to Philip – only straight talk and facts. No outsider wrote this letter. I did. I have lived in Big Timber all my life, and Philip is related to me, so writing the letter did not come easy. It is about right verses wrong, and what is best for our Republic and our community in the long run – for TRUE stability, safety, financial security, and common sense in our community.
