To the citizens of Van Buren:
On Feb. 7, 2019, the polls will be opened for you to make your voice heard regarding the wheel tax. Myself and several other residents attended the Committee A – Budget meeting, Thursday, Jan. 10, and you should know as we have said previously passing the Wheel Tax in NO WAY eliminates the Board of Commissioners from later passing a property tax increase as was mentioned by them again during this meeting.
So, again, as I have said many times and so have others, we fought for the citizens of Van Buren County to at least have their voices heard by voting in this special election on Feb. 7 or during early, which is now in progress and continues through Feb. 2. Early voting will be held in the Voter Registration Office, at 121 Taft Drive, Spencer, TN. (new Justice Center Building).
Whether you vote for the wheel tax or against the wheel tax, please EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE. Let your voice be heard and let the Board of Commissioners know you care enough about your county to vote for what you feel is the right thing to do and not just go with the flow and let a few decide for you. Another thing to keep in mind is that this Board of Commissioners could have saved this county approximately $15,000 by having this referendum put on the November ballot and chose not to, thus this special vote.
Thank you and God bless each of you.
Nancy Beck – Spencer, Tennessee
