Over the last week the school board made a request to the county commission budget committee for 56 million dollars for new construction of two schools and upgrades to North West High School. I do not think that anyone will argue against the need for new schools or that even more will not be needed in the coming years.

The County Commissioners find themselves faced with two options. Either raise taxes, or put off the construction. At present they are looking at a 6 cent increase in property tax from 2.88 to 2.94. This will an option that will be unpopular to most residents, and an undue burden to many. «Read the rest of this article»

Barbara M. Brown, I am running for the Montgomery County Commission District 2

 

Barbara Melton BrownThis site is an encouragement to everyone to participate in the electoral process. It is extremely important for all registered voters to VOTE in the county general election.

The County Commission, among other duties, sets the county tax rate and approves the county budget, including the amount spent on education, infrastructure, and public safety. It is also important that commissioners represent the broad spectrum of our community.

In the Montgomery County Commission Race for District 2, I bring a proven record of 29 years of community service. I began with the Cub Scout program at St B where I served as Cubmaster for 6 years and then directed the district day camp program for 2 years. When my sons were in Little League and band, I also supported those programs with volunteer service and leadership. «Read the rest of this article»
