To the editor:

Thanks to the mayor and town leaders of Macon for refusing to cough up more taxpayers’ money for the Kerr-Tar Regional Council of Government. The commissioners of the other entities should have had that much backbone.

A thorough third-party accounting of the reason and mistakes Kerr-Tar made is needed. What the commissioners and representatives of Vance, Granville, Oxford and Henderson need to realize is all the money they spend is taken from taxpayers. Governments create no money and are accountable.

I hope your paper has the nerve to print all the facts concerning this issue when they are available.
