GOAT HILL PIGGY-BANK

Baldwin County is the piggy-Bank for Goat Hill supported by the same elected officials, we elected, to represent us. The Tax Man Chris Elliott, as a county commissioner, taxed the citizens of Baldwin County without any vote of his constituents. Mr Elliott then raided the 1% school tax to the tune of 200,000 dollars a year, for the county. He is living up to his reputation as the Tax Man by supporting the gas tax, again without any vote by the public. Over 80% of the voters opposed the gas tax. Did our elected officials listen? Hell NO. This is the political plan, tax them right after being elected, because the voters will forget in 4 years.

Who does the Gas Tax hurt the most?

Taxes are necessary and in most cases people do not oppose taxes, IF THEY ARE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF THE TAX. The gas tax, for infrastructure, has been raided by Goat hill for over a decade and it will continue. Former Governor Riley drained every account he could before he left office. Former Governor Bentley used BP funds to build a beach mansion. Former State Senator BP Pittman skimmed 750,000 dollars of BP money for his company. Were any of these elected officials held accountable? Hell no!

Baldwin County is a piggy-bank for Goat Hill, we supply as much as 35% of the general budget for the state. In return our elected officials, in Baldwin County, lie down like dogs, when commanded by Goat Hill, our current Puppet Governor, or the Business Council of Alabama.

FAUX TAX, GAS TAX

Governor Kay Ivey is a puppet on a string. In a recent article she announces a special session for a gas tax. In one paragraph she talks about money for infrastructure two paragraphs later we find out…

Alabama is the most corrupt state in the United States. Our politicians rarely are held accountable, unless it is political motivated.

Politicians walk, while we chain and cuff underage kids for drinking.

Orange Beach has the most corrupt municipal judge in Baldwin County, now he is going to judge kids drinking. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach operate more like dictatorships and listen only to the good ole boys and developers. I am not supporting underage drinking but it is hypocritical of elected officials to arrest kids, chain them up for public humiliation, ignore political corruption and tax it’s citizens without any representation.

Ask yourself what is more egregious, kids drinking? Or our elected officials taxing us without representation.

Elliott was groomed to impose taxes in his gullible Republican baldwin county folk.
Sad but true. He will be relected easily bc of straight ticket balloting.

Hemiwolfgang5

Kay Ivey will not be re elected.
Neither will Elliott.
He will be defeated by another republican…

DumbALvoter

Y’all we gotta quit voting republican. This overtaxation is starting to get expensive.

Cramer F. Bishop

I saw Chris Elliott in a new vehicle with dark tint. He is such a p.o.s. for selling the people out. Chris you said you would never vote for new taxes.

You are a liar.

Spanish Fort Oracle

But Ripp, they are Christian Conservatives…

Ran Nisbett

A source for this statement would be much appreciated: “Baldwin County is a piggy-bank for Goat Hill, we supply as much as 35% of the general budget for the state.” Thanks!

Francis Ripp

The County Commission and Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance, Mayors and the Chamber of Commerce have used figures from 33% to 37%. The Ripp Report used 35% as an average, it may vary a few points either way.

Anonymous

But they are still Christian and Conservative

Fairhopemom

Alabama best change it’s ways or the change they get and dezerve is gonna b ugly. It may be time to move soon. Everything’s so dern expensive!!

Truth

Ran. You must not be from around here. Baldwin County has contributed an average of OVER 30% of the entire Alabama States budget for the past 30 years that I personally know for a fact. No other County in Alabama even comes close. So think about all the money these goofy, lying pieces of crap are wasting each and everyday. Waste includes funding their own agenda as well as the kickbacks they receive. It’s amazing how many of these politicians that I walked up to when we had the dedication at Orange Beach that would just simply lie straight to your face. You find me a politician in the State of Alabama that hasn’t lied or personally benefited their own bank accounts with unlawful monies and I’ll show you Santa Claus and bring the Easter Bunny to your house. These sobs don’t even know that God is watching and judging them. They must think they are invisible to the Lord. Damn them all!

Greg Lawyer

Robert Brown is in. Hurch every Sunday. He has a new house bought with money from a city contract. Robert is telling everyone he has had enough of political life!!!

Idiots!!! We allowed this.Greg

Georgia Orwell

Seriously, Robert Brown is a partner in a well respected home building company…..I don’t know what city contract you refer to (probably the art center), but that is absurd. His company has been making money for years and he can probably afford to buy whatever he wants. Additionally, I have heard that the art center was not even his project, but it was Cliff Pitman’s. Do you think that he stole something also?

Truth

Shut the hell up Georgia! You have never contributed one fact to this page!!! Get another drink!!! You don’t even know whose side you are on!

Constantine

Arts Center. Yes.
Thanks Jester.
Prison is still a possibility for this corrupt city council.

Sandy Ford

Sounds like you are familiar with the heist. Why did Brown build his dream home after he got the $600k contract?
Asking for a friend down the street.

Francis Ripp

ask Brown, I have heard many who live on Fly Creek wish to have nothing to do with him.Please remember he was 100% behind the developer of Publix, Angelo Corte,in support of the apartments and ignored the damage done to the creek by the development.

Francis Ripp

Cliff Pittman is on the board of Single Tax and they gave the money to the Art center where Robert Brown Councilman and board member of the Art center is also Cliff Pittman’s business partner. They used information afforded to them by their elected positions to advance themselves financially. That is illegal in 50 states, you just have a better chance of getting away with it in Alabama, the most politically corrupt state in the U.S.

Goat Hill wins again!

LiLLourdFontleroy

The big land grab of 2020 is happening folks. It’s a huge rush of midwestern baby boomers tired of the cold weather. They are buying up the beach and all of foley and gulf shores and fairhope, daphne, etc. The politicians are at the trough lining their pockets with deals galore. We are all sheep.

Not going to farm

Yep and I got some farmland off a county road my father left me that I am going to sell to dr Horton. I am going to make enough where I can retire

EX-patriot

Someone tell R. Brown the ethics commission is aware of what he did.
Just like the FBI (FEDERAL bureau of investigations).
They have been camped in fairhope for two years building a huge case.

Get Real

There is NO federal investigation. Even if the FBI is in town then th e real reason is so that they can have a mini vacation away from Mobile.

Francis Ripp

No is a big word

Notarippfan

How you have been able to maintain the lies for so long without being sued is unreal.
You best watch what you say!!!

Francis Ripp

You do not get sued for telling the truth. Ask yourself why do those accused never defend themselves? Pick a topic and tell me the LIE you think you see but you do not understand, I will defend it.

Joe B. Low

Time to start voting democrat in AL. No other choice.
