Voters have decided tax collector issue

Written by 

To the Editor:

Funny how Rep. Mike Clampitt, R-Bryson City, never mentions once that we are the only county in the state where this position is elected, that there are very few counties (I believe just one) who had to have a referendum on this issue and also that this was a unanimous decision by our board of commissioners made up of three Democrats and two Republicans. 

The people of Haywood County vote every two years to put commissioners in place to make decisions for what is in the best interests of all of Haywood County. 

He is trying to turn this thing and make it about voting and choice, but he is listening to the few and truly ignoring the voters in Haywood County who selected the give of us as Commissioners to make decisions. We did that and he as well as Rep. Michele Presnell, R-Burnsville, just ignored us.

Kirk Kirkpatrick,

Chairman, Haywood County Board of Commissioners
