The Downfall of Economic Development
By TheDoctor @The Henry Neighbor
Mr. Charles Mobley has written a great piece about the Henry County BoC not funding economic developmentbut actually continuing to shrink the budget to help promote it. They are keeping the citizens within a capsuleinsulated from what is actually happening and what they are told.Read his article entitled, "Where is Albert Einstein?"In Henry County, GA the Board of Commissioners (BOC) have yet to give a high priority to bringing jobopportunity to the county.The 2011-2012 adopted budget exemplifies the priority of the current administration and all the boardmembers. Keeping tax payers happy with Culture and Recreation and keep them informed with greatcommunications is more of a priority than economic growth.
The REAL State of Henry County
Henry County Board of Commissioners just published its C
(CAFR) forFY2011 which ended June 30, 2011. This coincides with Commission Chairman B.J. Mathis State of the CountyAddress made available via video today (
).Regardless of the rosy spin she tries to put on things, it’s clear from this report that our elected officials have aserious spending problem that’s been going on for a very long time.Read the entire revealing article!
REAL State of Henry County
I was shocked myself when I did the math on those based on the charts shown in the report. At first Ithought maybe I'd made a mistake so I ran the numbers about 5 more times just to make sure. But, it'sright there on page 119 shown as the net value of Henry County in dollars.
How manytimes have you heard BJ Mathis make the argument for spending because Henry's population has grownso much in the last 10 years? I know I've heard it several times, especially since the census was just donelast year. This completely takes the wind out of that sail as an argument for spending from now.
I honestly believe there was a divine intervention in this blog. I used the search feature on the countywebsite and the first link it returned was to this CAFR report for 2011 that was just published onDecember 20th, so it's pretty new. I figured this report was what BJ
basing her SOTC Addresson and here it just fell in my lap.I read the whole thing and, I think, because BJ had made population such a big issue, is exactly whythose numbers stood out to me. 38% growth didn't seem nearly as big a deal as she'd made it out to be.So that got me wondering how disproportionate was the growth of the county related to the populationand it was all right there in black and white. Once I had that part done, the land deals were easy.I haven't even been able to stomach the thought of watching BJ's videos and frankly, I don't intend onwatching them because it's all a bunch of spin and lies. A link is posted to it so others can see forthemselves how she spins it against the facts.We must make this blog go viral. Please, ask everyone you know to email it to their friends and neighbors.

BJ’s Vision Will Suck Us Dry
As I watch the State of the County address it became apparent that I could become ill by the end of thisdiatribe of dribble. Most of the address she was trying to explain why she is right in all the evil she has doneover the years. I lost count how many times she said quality of life, it started to make me toss my cookies.She has no clue what a person’s quality of life is; it is different for every person in the County.Of course she had to try and get people on her side about buying Tara Field Airport. Thinking that thecompanies that are here now will use it is grasping at straws. Saying that Snapper might use the airport to flypeople in, Snapper doesn’t own a plane not to say that Snapper is no more they are now Briggs & Stratton,hello Chairman did you not know this talk about being out of touch. She kept stating that the County only paid$2Million and that the FAA paid $15Million, again she is out of touch. Mrs. Mathis where does the FAA get itsmoney? From the tax payers of Henry County and the Nation.Then we had to listen to her about her trip to Israel and how they cope with problems and the vision they havewhen things go wrong. This is all well and nice but we are not Israel we have other types of problems we don’tget along with each other as well as they do, they have a higher standard of morals than we do. Her vision isfor us to cave in and let her have her way with our money and ask no questions just believe in her. She wantsto be bold and do bold things to think out side of the box to fix the County’s problems. Now is this Chairman
