County Resident's Rebuttal to the City's Annexation Argument

Annexation by ordinance is a gross misuse of power.  Our future is being dictated by an edict from a municipal government for whom we did not vote or elect.  We have no say in the matter, however, we do have the moral support of the Hamilton County Commission and County Mayor Claude Ramsey which issued a resolution in opposition to annexation.  State Representative Jim Cobb has assisted in fighting this issue and has gone as far as presenting a bill to reform the state's annexation law.

 

We are prepared to fight this issue to the end, but cannot do so without your immediate financial support.  HCRAA's actions alone have saved residents who were annexed by ordinance property taxes for the year 2010 and 2011.  If your home is valued at $150,000 our efforts have directly saved you $1,732 in property tax alone for 2010/11.  Please consider what we have saved your family when making your non-tax-deductible donation today.
