In last year’s election it was all about jobs, taxes and spending. I am pleased to see that our leaders, both in the General Assembly and in Chatham County, have stuck to this message and are keeping their promises. Private sector jobs are the priority, and they are working to make our state and county an attractive place for businesses to grow, so we can produce more jobs. This encompasses a lot of things, but reducing taxes and regulatory roadblocks for businesses is crucial. Prioritizing and controlling essential spending so that we can be in the position to lower taxes is the key to help grow our economy.
