Tax, tax and re-tax that is the bottom line for Baldwin County. The developers pay no or little impact fee for their projects which ends up costing you, the taxpayer, to make up the difference in the cost of Schools, Streets/Transportation and Education.

As the fastest growing County in the State, Baldwin County School System has been negatively impacted the most due to the lack of long-term planning from the board.

Governor Ivy now wants even more control over a failing education system, by appointing State School Board Members, rather than electing them.

Bill to end election of state school board members

Bill to end election of state school board members


Our politicians are now trying to pass a lottery, that for the last 20 years has been referred to as an education lottery. The proposed lottery has NO money for education! The politicians wish to use the lottery to pay back the State General Fund, as far back as 2013. Alabama politicians are supporting a lottery that would pay back the State’s general Fund for the money politicians have already stolen or misappropriated. A proposed amendment to the bill would give education 25%, a far cry from 100%.



Alabama is going to give the lottery away to the highest bidder, the Poach Creek Indians. You sure cannot blame the Poach Creek Indians for understanding how to manipulate our good Republican…


In Fairhope a special school tax was favored by the City Council over a Mayor’s proposal push for impact fees and making the contribution more equitable. The Council President made it perfectly clear in his statement that “the City Council wants out of any School business.”



Fairhope City Council has been pedaling backwards their whole term. They now have a chance to pedal forward, putting Fairhope on the map, when it comes to the city supporting education.


These are the same micromanaging Christian conservatives who pound their chest every time the word taxes comes up, yet they favor taxing their constituency even when municipal funds, already collected taxes, are available. Welcome to Baldwin County we need your taxes. Doesn’t make sense.

    All Baldwin politicians are liars and fake Christians.

    • True, but they are not faithful enough that they will be judged by God in the end. This day they not be able to be fake or lie!!!

        By the time God judges them it will be too late. Also the politicians don’t care because they don’t believe that Christian crap. The true god to them is money. They just use that Christian front to dupe the voters. What’s more it is working for them

    I can tolerate politicians in Church because we all are sinners. I cannot tolerate all those politicians who lie and have sexually harassed Women and also those politicians who have paid for their abortions. This is a crime not to mention the fact they want full control and are screwing us by raising taxes and deceiving us by leaving out Education out of the Lottery. Kay Ivy is a real disappointment to women’s rights. Has she ever gotten pregnant by a rapist? NO politician should even have a vote on a Woman body decision, especially a group made up of mostly White terrible people. This is another act that will cost Alabama tens of millions or more. As far as Jackass Jack Burrell wanting to get out of the school business. Tell him that’s okay, just pay us back all the past Airport money (millions) that the city has paid and discontinue the hundreds of thousands of dollars we pay each year to the Airport and he will change his mind in a New York second! He’s out of here! That’s a promise that will happen in any election he decides to run for my fellow Fairhopians.

    The developers are adding houses and stressing the infrastructure. I believe an impact fee would help but the developers fund and pay for the politicians via Catalyst to keep this from happening.
    One candidate last election said “Let growth pay for growth and the developers threw money at his rival to make sure impact fees would never happen
    Why should we old Baldwin Countians pay for the newly needed infrastructure caused by the developers when we have been paying for it all these years?
    It is because impact fees take more money out of the subdivision builders’ pockets and it is far cheaper paying for politicians who will kill any impact fees
    I know at least three commissioners are owned by Catalyst and Catalyst is a front for the developers
    In essence Catalyst is robbing Baldwin County as the satanic politicians say they are Christian Conservatives

    Trailer Park Schools.
    Fairhope is not a top 25 school in AL.

    Alabama is dead last in education.

      Who cares about education? I build and sell houses. Let the citizens do schools. It is not the job of homebuilders to supply schools
      We build homes- not communities

      • I arrest people who break the law home builder. Let me interview you and see what you may need to be arrested for. When people like you admit that you could care less about education while making money off families that have children and that you could care less about doing your part for education whether you have a 5th grade education or a college degree you should want to help the schools and the education system. Why don’t you tell us who you are and we can certainly put a very quick dent in the amount of homes you are building. You must not have children because you certainly are the scumbag of a real citizen. Screw your. You are cheating your customers and you don’t know what it means to be respectful or have respect. What a wonderful life your love and how proud you must be of yourself. Slither off you sorry snake.

          Hey Citizens, why are you so unnerved by that ONE builder? You want his name?
          His name is Legion for he is many.

            Your comment is sad, but true. Of course this guy is not a cop. A cop wouldn’t say any of that. Well, not in public. But so many of you just do not care about your community. You’ll let it go to shambles because that’s your source of income. And you think taxing it will make it go away in one of the fastest growing parts of the country.

            It’s not surprising. You have been conned into believing that caring about your community is a liberal thing. People like Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Trump, Savage, etc. They are rolling in their money laughing at you people. And guess where they live? Oh, they say what a great place conservative areas are when they visit. Then they go back to their homes in their liberal strongholds. They wouldn’t be caught dead buying property in places that they’ve pushed this mentality. Hannity and Trump. New Yorkers. Savage? Oh he’s got a house in San Fran, Beverly Hills, and West Palm Beach.

            They wouldn’t be caught dead buying property where the suckers who have taken in the con. Why would they? It’s nobody’s responsibility. That other citizen, it’s their duty! Not me. Not the one wrecking the place with no proper planning.

          Interview me? Ha! Ever heard of the Fifth Amendment? Look it up.
          If you arrest people in the name of the law then maybe you should learn the about the law first.
          Two words you might also want to look up: civil rights.

          • Scared? Say Scared! Why would you even let it bother you if you know it to be untrue. Looks like nerves are being hit. Yes a cop can say publicly that he would be like to interview the home builder. If any of you lived a clean life. This comment from would have not even made a blip on your radar. Shows guilty all over you scumbags. But don’t worry. Y’all are everywhere and it’s so obvious!

          How is NOT caring breaking the law?

    • Anonymous | May 18, 2019 at 4:01 pm |

      Fairhope is a huge lie.
      School is overrun
      More trailers ordered.
      Record number of kids registered.

    Time for Burrell to be exposed.
    Has anyone bothered to read his police report?

    • Adjudication | May 20, 2019 at 6:03 pm |

      Whether or not he has a police report means nothing. A cop can arrest you for suspicion for spitting on the sidewalk.
      As one cop would say, “Just arrest them all and let the judge sort it out.”
      So, a police report is just that: a police report. Today’s police arrest first then ask questions later.
      Yes, it use to be “To protect and to serve.” Now it is “To harass, ticket, and arrest.” Is it any wonder why so many dislike the cops?
      With this type of thinking, anyone can have a police report. I bet you may have one yourself.
