The county debt has been steadily decreasing each year under Republican leadership...the recently
completed annual audit (as reported here by the Watauga Democrat)
has shown that, under conservative leadership, debt can be decreased, services maintained and taxes kept low!
From the Democrat article:
- The county's assets exceeded liabilities by $118.83 million at the close of the fiscal year, an increase of $4.67 million from the previous year. "The change was primarily due to an increase in revenues and a reduction in expenditures over last year," the memo stated.
