A friend writes me: “The Mayor opposes SPLOST and neither the City Council, the Mayor, nor the County Commission have affirmative committed to no property tax increase later.”

VERY GOOD POINT. I think the voters need some reassurances and without those assurances, I think we really are being held hostage.

As Ronald Reagan said: No negotiating, even when hostages are involved.

We’ll have to consider this some more.
