LOST victory

  • Wednesday, November 13, 2013



Dear Editor,



As chairman of Dorchester County Taxpayers Association, I would like to thank all those individuals and organizations (especially Senator Mike Rose, Councilman Larry Hargett, the Dorchester County Democrat Party, the Dorchester County Republican Party, the “Tea Party” groups and our own membership, as well as dozens of other folks) who worked tirelessly for two months to defeat the Local Option Sales Tax (LOST) referendum in Dorchester County on November 5, 2013. You did it. Yes, you did. Thanks!

Thanks as well to those who voted resoundingly, “NO.”

With all due respect to those whose views somewhat differ from our own, from our perspective, those who worked so hard and those who cast the overwhelmingly “NO” vote, to deny the “REALTOR PARTY” its precious tax increase and its redistribution of tax dollars away from the poor and middle-class residents of Dorchester County, not only defeated one of the worst ideas since Adam but thwarted the pipe dreams of those mayors, superintendents, special interests, boards and councils in favor of LOST.

Congratulations again! Now let us unite to further those common sense principles of our founding generation, principles of transparency, accountability and concurrency, as opposed to the visionary foolishness that leads to sprawl, inefficiency and fraud!



John Braund, Chairman

Dorchester County Taxpayers Association
