Grassroots Effort Starts For Citizens Group Locally

A local man is trying to start a new ?TaxWatch? group in Bay County.

He is trying to get support from Republicans, Democrats and anyone and everyone who will become part of the group.

Paul Sims is asking the Bay Country Commission on Tuesday for its support for the new group.

The TaxWatch group is designed so that citizens in the community will have a say so about how taxpayers money is spend.

Sims says it?s a civic duty to become involved. I feel like all the citizens should be involved in their local government and local government is about the only place we have left where we actually have a voice. We are not heard anywhere else and everyone should become involved.?

For more information or to become involved, you can call 850-763-0389.
