Catoosa County C4L Blocks Taxpayer Bailout
Way to go Catoosa County (GA) Campaign for Liberty! Members showed up to a County Commissioner’s meeting and successfully blocked a proposed $35 Million taxpayer bailout of the Hutcheson Medical Center.
“I think they did the right thing today. There’s too much we don’t know,” said Joanna Skiles, a coordinator for Catoosa Campaign for Liberty, the county chapter of a nonprofit group founded in 2008 by presidential candidate Ron Paul.
The Catoosa Campaign for Liberty used Facebook to alert its members to Thursday’s meeting, Skiles said. The group also weighed in at recent government meetings to oppose property tax hikes approved by the commission and the Catoosa County Schools.
While the bailout has been put on hold for now, it will likely come up again at future meetings so members should keep a close eye on proceedings.
