Charles Barbour to sign Taxpayer Protection Pledge
When: Monday, November 24th 10:00 AM
Where: Steps of Hinds County Chancery Court Building (316 S. President St.)
Jackson – Ward 1 City Council Candidate Charles Barbour will sign a Taxpayer Protection Pledge, vowing as Councilman to “oppose any and all efforts to increase taxes.”
“I am pleased to sign this pledge because it is wrong to ask the taxpayers of Jackson to do more when their government has done so little,” said Barbour. “I will also challenge my opponents to sign this pledge and make a commitment to the hardworking men and women of our great city that they will not raise taxes.”
Barbour’s campaign says his opposition to tax increases has been clear for years including throughout his eight years of service as a Hinds County Supervisor in which he never voted for a tax hike. Barbour voted against in excess of 30 tax increases while serving as supervisor.
Barbour is the former President of the Hinds County Board of Supervisors, a small business owner, and is a retired Mississippi Army National Guard Lieutenant Colonel.
The Special Election will be held December 2nd to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Quentin Whitwell.
