BALDWIN COUNTY CITIZENS For GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY (CGA)

Penny Sales Tax Debacle

David Peterson:

“I would like to clarify what transpired that led to the Penny Sales Tax being levied by the County Commission in January of 2017. When the BCBOE requested that the Alabama Legislature approve the extension or to make the Tax Permanent the Legislature declined to do so and wanted the Voters to make the decision. The Legislature did agree to extend the tax for 6 months, it was due to expire May 30, 2018, which would allow the BCBOE to not have a lapse in funding until they could get it on the November 2018 General Election Ballot. The BCBOE was not happy with the Legislature’s decision so they approached the County Commission to see if they would levy the tax. A deal was then brokered with the Commission to exchange the percentages of the 1984 Penny Sales Tax if they would in return levy the tax. The County Commission opted to honor their request, this exchange cost the BCBOE around $4 million dollars a year in funding which now goes to the County Commission. I was in attendance at a town hall meeting in Robertsdale, sponsored by Senator Albrittion, when Mr. Tyler was ask why they agreed to the swap in funding. His reply was “Out of fear the Voters would not approve the extension or to make permanent the tax”. With this being said it greatly concerns me that if elected Mr. Elliot will carry this mindset to Montgomery that the Voters are not capable of making the right decision at the polls, something to think very hard about folks!!!”

DID YOU TEACHERS KNOW THIS? CHRIS ELLIOTT AND EDDIE TYLER MADE A DEAL THAT WILL COST THE BCBOE OVER 40 MILLION DOLLARS EVERY 10 YEARS! WHY WOULD YOU VOTE FOR EITHER ONE? (The Ripp Report)

    Why did the BCBOE need to be rescued. What happened to the resources set aside for capital improvements?

  2. Eddie Tyler is a catalyst sellout. As is Cecil Christenbury. Boycott his feed and seed.

      I agree with USMC 1967. Christenberry thinks everything is a joke and shows it with his clowning ways at the Board meetings. The proper management of a school system is serious business, not something to joke about with parental concerns. It is all about covering up lies, intimidation of teachers who speak out, mismanagement of funds and the out of control spending for non essential personnel and programs. Boycott Fairhope Feed and Seed!

    Let’s not forget Jon Gray. He is he politico behind BCBE AND Chris Elliott. He lives in Fairhope and is contributing to it’s downfall by selling out to the highest bidder. Fairhope is supposedly his home, yet he doesn’t care to make our school system better. He also is getting paid to help a snake win office. He is the lowest of them all!
