Campbell County Library Tax Increase

All the discussions are coming to an end, the pros and cons have been voiced by both sides on this issue and I believe the reasons to vote AGAINST is very compelling. Just this past Friday in the Enquirer, 19 properties were listed for "Commissioner's Sale" which means 19 people lost properties for some reason. The economy in our county may have improved for some, but we have a long way to go before the un-employed, including those who gave up looking, drops down below 8%.

Another reason is simply the need. Just looking at the library's own map, under 15,000 residences fall into the area surrounding this branch, not enough to support this size of a facility. The design is way too expensive, the need for a basement never proven, the reason for such large meeting rooms never provided. Is this going to be a local library or is it a large community center?

We were told they would listen to the communities voices when they held their 6 meetings, but we were lied to. As everyone who attended these listening sessions know, there were more questions than answers, more against than for, and lots of suggestions to decrease costs shot down on the spot by the library. Now they are on record saying that the wording of the ballot issue does not mean what it says, and if they want to build, even if it goes down to defeat, they might build anyway.

This board and the director want our tax dollars to spend as they wish no matter what we say and this must stop. We must push our legislators to correct the un-democrat process of Unelected Bureaucrats having the power to Tax and Spend without accountability to the taxpayer. The Tea Party does not acccept this process and will fight in Frankfort to make special taxing districts accountable.

Campbell Weekly Newsletter

We have our last meeting before the Election on Thursday Night, 7:00PM at 1098 Monmouth Street, Newport. Any and all candidates who want to speak may sign-up for a 5 minute speaking slot just like all our regular meetings, there will be NO debating, just your chance to give us the best reason to vote for you. Our members will be asking questions, but no opponents or their representatives will be able to ask questions. Jack will control the time and monitor the questioning.

Saturday’s Literature Drop

Saturday was not the best weather to be out climbing steps and placing literature bags on front doors but 10 Tea Party supports showed up and we covered most of Bellevue and a good part of Dayton. We have about 500 bags left to distribute in Cold Spring, Highland Heights and Fort Thomas so if you want to drop some in your neighborhood let me know and I will get some to you. Because we are out of literature after those bags are gone we will finish up with individual drops and no longer do the Saturday groups drop.

Kentucky has SURPLUS MONEY!!!

I did not know until just this Friday that Kentucky has soooo much surplus money they can give $650,000 to a private group to do a study on their privately owned property. I bet every developer with a wild ideal is on their way to Frankfort to get a meeting with Keene type legislatures for their share of the windfall! I guess all the state maintained roads are in truly great shape that the Road Department can give away this money.

Campbell County Library

Sometime this month the board must announce the amount of the tax increase they will request to proceed with construction of their south branch. We have a committee in place to run the petition drive and we will need many workers to get this job done. Please make yourself available to take petitions door to door throughout the county to get this increase on the ballot.

The committee will meet 30 minutes earlier at our regular July 12th meeting date to help get organized, please come and help get this job done. The petition is the process to get the Issue onto the November Ballot so the voters can decide if they want to pay the expected 27% higher tax rate, for sure we do not want unelected bureaucrats to decide.

We have requested other groups to join us in the process, with many hands and a lot of preparation we can and must get this done. Do to the late timing of the Library Boards decision on the rate we will be under the gun to get the signatures to the clerk in time so please make your self available to help. Jack Decker is the Chairman and can be reached at (cell) 859-635-3732 or (e-mail) This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Are increased library taxes necessary?

In the age of the internet the paper book is becoming obsolete. The need for grand facilities to store them should have decreased. A library web page could easily substitute for a many of these costly and lavish monuments to obsolescence. It seems to me that one central library per county would be adequate. If branches are necessary they should be small utilitarian places with some computer terminals, and a place to pick items ordered form the central stacks. We can no longer afford empire building at public expense.

Campbell County School Board

It is time to do some serious planning, the largest taxing authority in Campbell County, The School Board has three board members up for election this fall. If you have ever thought of running for an elected position this would be a great place to get your feet wet. If you know the perfect person to run for one of these seats please talk to them and encourage them. We have limited influence on this board and need to work harder to get some more, having a board member or three with Tea Party attitudes would go a long way to saving our tax dollars.

This is very important, a lot of the boards we are working on to slow or cut the cost of their operation are appointed boards, this board is elected and should be contested so we get the best Taxpayer representative on the board. We will always support the schools but we can and must do a better job managing the cost of the schools.
