“Stop wasting taxpayer money” said Gretchen Quarterman in the May 28th 2013 Regular Session of the Lowndes County Commission.
I sort of wish that I had been able to observe the executive session where you discussed the pending lawsuit against Deep South Sanitation. I wonder who asked the question “Is it beneficial to all concerned?” I wonder which one of you said “This will really attract people to start or relocate business in our county when we sue one of our local business owners.”
If I were considering a business move, I wouldn’t move to a county that eats its own.
I ask that you drop the lawsuit and stop wasting taxpayer money. Thank you.
Bill Slaughter and Gretchen Quarterman were inducted into Valdosta Rotary on the same day (12 September 2012); that’s John Page (who recently vacated District 5), already a member, standing behind them. County Attorney Walter Elliott is also a member. The Rotary
Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do.
- Is it the truth?
- Is it fair to all concerned?
- Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
- Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
