Today, citizens from Albany and the surrounding area will gather in front of the Albany courthouse to participate in, and join, the “Second American Revolution” to express their indignation over the extortion of taxpayers by federal, state, county and city officials.
Fellow taxpayers, public apathy, acceptance of poor leadership and misguided (if not corrupt) spending of public funds sends a message to governing officials that the “silent majority” (taxpaying citizens) have given up control of our nation, state and local government.
Today’s “Taxpayer Tea Party” is part of a national revolt, and our local Dougherty County Taxpayers Association urges every concerned citizen to be at the courthouse from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to send a message to federal, state and local governments that we are fed up with arrogant officials who feel they are no longer accountable to the taxpayers who elected them and fill their coffers every year with hard-earned dollars. Apathy and tolerance of this abuse is our greatest enemy. If you care, be there.
Co-Chairman, Dougherty County Taxpayers Association
