#COVINGTON — Newton County commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday night to sever ties with long-time County Attorney Tommy Craig, prompting enthusiastic applause and cheers from the packed meeting room at the Newton County Historic Courthouse.
Thank goodness for news investigators like Catie Beck of Channel 11-WXIA-TV. People of Newton County have complained about Tommy Craig, his exorbitant salary, and money wasted on Bear Creek Reservoir for years. Beck’s reporting of Craig’s huge debt to the IRS and his million dollar plus fees paid by Newton County in addition to the Newton County citizens’ pressure, led to Craig’s termination.
Citizen involvement DOES make a difference!!
Citizens, be informed and stay informed! Only by being informed can the citizens understand what is being done and talked about, and then press our officials to make good decisions for everyone in Jasper County. That is our goal with the Taxdogs blog.
