The following video occurred after the Cherokee County Commissioners’ meeting on June 18, 2012. Lorraine Meltz explains to Mark Meadows how she had to put up with Mr. (not Dr.) Eichenbaum for 1-1/2 hours detailing why the county should not pay $18,000 next year for Agenda 21. Commissioner Jordan made a motion to defund this item in next year’s budget but neither Lorraine Meltz or David Wood would second the motion which would have put them on the record for funding Agenda 21.
Meltz had previously falsely accused me of being delinquent for 2011 property taxes after posting an article from a previous meeting:

“now would you like to tell how could make all the comments you made when you have not paid your 2011 taxes that are now deliquent. If you feel you can throw stones make sure your back yard is clean”
Commissioner Meltz Tuesday, Tuesday, February 28, 2012 5:03 PM
“your tax bill is overdue. Will anyone suffer if businesses do not pay their fair share? NO, was your answer, if people do not pay there fair share of the taxes everyone suffers, how can the county pay their responsibilities with out tax revenues? if you have a solution for that then we would all like to hear that.”
Even though I explained that we had paid all of our taxes, she still had the county send me an overdue tax notice from Cherokee County’s Tax Assessors Office. Funny thing was that the tax office did not send it: she had an employee in another department send it. The county tax office explained that we paid our taxes on time but that they switched to a new system on December 15, 2011. It appears that when a county commissioner abuses her authority, she does not even know enough to use the latest information available.
