Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this time. Although I had not saw Belinda in a few years, I often thought of her and times we shared as small kids.

formeralbanyresident 1 year, 8 months ago on Dukes: Now isn't the time for TSPLOST

Are any of you looking at what this will do for our community? The unemployement rate in Albany was up last month. Don't you think that if this were in place, that rate would be much lower?

What are we going to do is the USMC closes because we have only one way to I75? How many more jobs will that cost us? The unemployment rate rises again then.

What are you going to do for food and groceries, when they close the roads to those places because there is no money to repair them? Or if you are able to get to them, how do you think the truck drivers are going to get to them to deliver the goods when the roads are closed? How will you get to the doctor, hospital or any other appointments because the bridge is out?

You need better roads and bridges all over Southwest Georgia. This Referendum will see that this happens. I for one am tired of having to dodge potholes or wonder if a road may cave in on me while driving down it. That is what this will do for us. This money collected will stay in this region for this purpose. None of the monies collected here will be sent to Atlanta.

My Vote will be YES.

If they were not in crime ridden areas, you might have some that would volunteer. I personally would not in those locations.

My vote will be YES.

T-SPLOST

A referendum on both Republican and Democratic ballots is the question for the controversial T-SPLOST.

If passed by a majority of the voters in Region 10, which includes the five-county Albany Metropolitan Statistical Area, this 1 percent sales tax will go to fund an estimated $530 million worth of regional and local-level projects over its 10-year life.

I agree whole heartedly. If these signs were Anti-TSPLOST, there were not even be anything being said about them being up.

I am glad to see that someone that is PRO-TSPLOST has taken the opportunity to ask everyone to vote for this Referedndum. I know that I am.

The ones that will be benefiting from this is the entire Southwest Georgia Region. Better roads, jobs created. There are already jobs that have been decided on in the various counties if this tax passes. So yes, Sasser, Meigs and Leary will get their piece of the pie.
