BJ Mathis: In Her Own Words
The Citizen 
has received communications written by Chairperson Mathis used to defendand explain her actions while in office. Each statement was written by BJ Mathis and isprovided here without alteration.The Mathis loyalist in this communique made this comment:
BJ came and donated money [to my organization]. I support those who support me, I value those who value me, I recognize those who recognize me, I honor those who honor me. I am loyal and expect loyalty 
.
 The other person, not a Mathis supporter, said,
So basically you're saying you 
re no different from all the rest of the politicians who can be bought and you'll throw the county down the tubes because someone flattered and bribed you 
.
 
The Citizen 
can only comment: Ain
t that a kick in the truth basket!?!
BJ Mathis said, The [local SPLOST] project list was there for all to see inadvance.
False. Only
types 
of expenditures are published for voters to approve. i.e.,Cotton Fields golf course, which has a $10 million plus interest balloon paymentdue in 2017, falls into the category of land purchases.
BJ Mathis said, [Regarding] T-SPLOST no one gave me credit for standing upand playing hardball...
Recall it was BJ Mathis who said, "There is no Plan B." She echoed the party linein support of passage while appearing before such groups as the Henry Councilfor Quality Growth.
BJ Mathis said, The firing range was paid for with Impact fees
The County purchased 160 acres of the Abernathy property for $4 million. Only25 acres of which are in use for a dirt-mound firing range. Impact fees or GreenStamps do not matter. WHY was it purchased at all?
BJ Mathis said, We are having to send 500 police and sheriff deputies toForsyth GA for certification
Where we have NO COST. Again, why did we spend $4 million?
 
BJ Mathis said, If Impact Fees are not used in a certain amount of time theymust be refunded
Every conservative who hates taxes will appreciate this one. An intrusive localtax on all development, commercial and residential, and it is government'smoney to waste?? The slush fund has been available since 2004.

The total cost of the range was $105,370.77. True. Cost of the 160 acres was $4 million. Let's tell the whole story. My grandkids will be retired before Henry County has funds for the grand training facility touted as the reason for the purchase. As for "you have to have a training facility," see my comment above. Are we spending $4 million to send officers to Forsyth? No.

Obviously, they have not looked Henry County Budget. Public Safety is our largest expenditure! The range in Hampton was closed. This isn't rocket science. If our population is growing, you have to have a training facility.

according to the Herald article "The total cost of the range was $105,370.77, which was split three ways, with $34,000 coming from the police department’s Asset Forfeiture and Seized Funds Account; $34,000 from the Sheriff’s Office, and $37,370.77 from the county’s general fund budget, minimizing the cost to taxpayers"
