As I’m sure you all know by now (if you’ve been reading my blog, of course), the Washington County Commission will be voting (AGAIN) on a $50 wheel tax and a 33 cent property tax increase this evening. Several responsible citizens will be holding signs and peacefully demonstrating outside the courthouse in Jonesborough beginning around 5:30pm.

Sadly, I won’t be able to make it, and I love a good protest (I staged my first one when I was 12…ahhh, precious memories). Not only do I have my dear baby to take care of, but I’m babysitting a little guy only 5 weeks older than my own. I’m not sure how I would hold two babies and a sign at the same time. So go out there and wave a sign for me!!! I’ll be at home praying for our commissioners to come to their senses.
