  • Do you see the huge smile on the current AC BOCC Chair? She is laughing at all us taxpayers because she “avoided” paying her fair share of property tax (until caught by the newspaper!!!!!) and knows the voters aren’t going to remember this by November! Wake up and vote her out in November! Don’t vote Mary Alford back in either! Both are subject to criminal charges for falsely claiming a homestead waiver! You, Alachua County Taxpayer, would be under investigation and looking at a fine and jail time if you had done the same!

  • The county needs to stay out of our private property rights and fix the potholes and get the vagrants out of the intersections first…all they will do is make the cost of living and rent go up if they pull the same move the GNV CC did with their landlord ordinance….things are getting expensive, huh?
