Info on the lone "NO" Vote on the Budget......

|

First of all, let me say that this year's budget was presented well and fairly represented the direction and wishes of a majority on council. A great deal of hard work went into this balanced budget (as usual) and there were no tax increases requested. So why vote against it?

I believe, whenever possible, a consistent stand on principle is key to ensuring dependable representation. If you vote for something because it's easy, looks or feels good then you never really build a foundation that The People can trust or count on. A good solid principled stand, therefore, is something I will always default to, unless I hear from You, The People to the contrary...

My vote against this seemingly good representative budget was one of principle. In short, here are the three principles that precipitated my "NO" vote:

I just heard that I’ve been ‘accused’ of being the mastermind and organizer of the great and very successful petition drive yesterday. Although I would be honored to have that great distinction, the truth is I was one of many followers of some really talented and dedicated organizers that made yesterday such a success.

We Meant That.....

That "No more business as Usual" thing...Yeah, we meant that.

Two years ago when I started campaigning, I assured voters that we would push for "no more business as usual".  We committed to taking a serious stand against over regulation and government intrusion on our private property rights.  We vowed to do the right thing for the taxpayers of Spartanburg County even when it wasn't popular or convenient.  We vowed to always stand firm on principle.  

Great strides have been made over these last two years, but the campaigning has not slowed down.  I still continue my door to door approach every year as if my election was right around the corner.  I firmly believe that I am not asking for your vote, I am asking for your trust.  Trust is not something that is earned once every four years - it is earned every single day.
