There's been a lot of "Hammer on Higdon" sentiment in the news lately. Commissioner Higdon ran on a promise of smaller government, less spending and less taxes. It's refreshing to see a politician who is willing to stand by his convictions and promises. Higdon has not allowed any special interests to sway him.
Although Higdon, won his election by a substantial margin we continue to see one 3 to 2 vote after another with Haven usually siding with Higdon in the minority trying to control the growth of government and spending. Higdon and Haven recently tried to lower property taxes proposing a 4 and-a-half mil decrease and proving the county had the funds available. They felt the taxpayers could use a break. It fell on deaf ears. Not even a compromise or token half-mil reduction.
