Here's an example. Earlier someone mentioned that Mr. Conway voted for the gun laws. I'm not sure but I thought that when the gun law bill was being pushed through he said he was not going to vote for it. So can someone verify what gun law they were talking about and did Mr. Conway actually vote for it? That answer would then become a fact.
Now here's a fact. I believe we all know what our county dump sticker is. After it was put into effect I don't believe I've ever seen it go down. It always goes up. Who directly was responsible for the new increase which goes into effect this year?
On Tuesday, May 21, 2013 the County Council met and this issue was presented. Three council members did not want to raise the fee. These were: Joe Holloway, Gail Bartkovich and Bob Culver. Four council members voted to increase the fee. These were: Matt Holloway, John Hall, Stevie Prettyman and Sample-Hughes. So here we have facts that show local elected officials raising fees right here in our own county. In this case the President or Governor had nothing to do with it.
Joe, I would like to see a spot on your news that keeps a running list of this type of information so that the readers can contribute to it after they verify the facts. I believe these facts will determine the out come of the 2014 elections. The facts will speak for themselves.
Publishers Notes: John, I will do what I can to obtain the information you are requesting but let me openly say the following.
In many cases the reason for the incredible success of Salisbury News is because of people like YOU. It is our VIEWERS that are the whistle blowers. We simply provide a platform to expose such information and people have come to learn that even though many elected officials attempt to defame us and or twist our finding, the viewers ultimately and quietly trust what we provide.
We are constantly coming across unreal stories that take time to research. We are working on one right now that will blow the minds of City and County residents. We will PROVE that the City and County are not only business unfriendly, we will prove they truly don't care about residential property owners as well.
We will show that even after you have lived here for 30 or 40 years, they'll find ways to depreciate your home so low that you can't even sell it if you wanted to. I'm talking about GOOD PEOPLE who have lost EVERYTHING.
Will I be popular when we do publish such a story, absolutely not. Will I be able to go to the City and County and say, would you please consider advertising with Salisbury News, absolutely not. I can tell you that even after "Paying It Forward" last year with advertising donations it still cost me personally $7,000.00 to the IRS to keep Salisbury News going.
We do this because we care. We continue because YOU need a platform to become educated about the truth AND to express your opinion on these matters.
I'm looking forward to 2014.
