    Col. Harry Riley Speaks to Americans Talk Show Along With Deborah Howard Operation American Spring has sprung. The momentum has been building, and our forces growing, for over eight months. The cries of millions of Patriots coalesce, in this coalition of Constitutionalists. We come with courage of conviction, with peace in our hearts. We are determined to mass. We will make our voices heard! We are armed only with our prayers. Our determination to rescue the government of the United States of America from the amoral enemies of Liberty is without bound. We must not fail! We come to the seat of power to speak truth. America has fallen away from the founding principles of freedom that once made her prosperous and great. We have become a nation not of liberty and law, but of elitist intimidation and crony corruption. Merit and hard work mean nothing anymore. No longer are American citizens free to exercise their God-given rights without interference from government. We come not as an attacking army of invaders, but in the bold vision of OAS founder Col. Harry Riley, as a massive 'human petition', demanding our elected Representatives begin the long-overdue task of cleansing our government of corrupt and criminal elements who have usurped their proper role as servants, and seek to rule, instead.

  2. Four residents serving on 2015 budget review teamWed, 03 Sep 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    Four Gwinnett residents have volunteered to help Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash on the budget review team setting priorities and making recommendations for the 2015 budget. The citizen members are Mark Brock, Burt Manning, Roger Willis, and Latabia Woodward. Brock, a returning review team veteran, is building maintenance director for Gwinnett County Public Schools. Manning is a retired real estate appraiser and assessment administrator who has worked in six Georgia counties, Willis is a retired district manager from Jackson EMC, and Woodward works as a strategic planning principal for Georgia Power and serves as president of the Gwinnett County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. “This is another way of getting public input to critical local government decisions,” said Nash. “These talented individuals have volunteered to dive into the details supplied by department directors and elected officials, ask thoughtful questions, and share their honest opinions.” Finding ways to provide core services despite declining tax revenue has been a challenge in recent years. County officials expect a tentative recovery and continued conservative budgeting this year. County departments and agencies present their business plans and financial resource requests to the review team in September each year. The videotaped presentations are made available to the public on the TVgwinnett government-access cable television channel and on demand on this website. Presentations began on September 3, 2014. The Chairman’s 2015 budget proposal will be made available to the public and news media prior to a public hearing in December. By Gwinnett County ordinance, the Board of Commissioners must adopt the annual budget during its first meeting in January. More...
