Susan Pons and John Snow Attend Candidate Forum in Murphy

Murphy – Republican Susan Pons pounded away at the need for tax cuts while Democrat state Sen. John Snow (D-Murphy) spoke of his experience as a judge and two-term state senator Thursday at a political forum hosted by the Cherokee Scout.

    Pons opened by saying taxpayers work 197 days, or 6.5 months, out of a year to pay government taxes and regulatory burdens. In 2007, Cherokee County received $2.5 million from the state but the county paid out $40 million in state taxes and debt load, she said.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
