    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.

  4. Board adopts 2014 millage rateMon, 28 Jul 2014 00:00:00 EDT
    Gwinnett County’s millage rate will not change in 2014. The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners set the rate during its regular business session on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, after three public hearings on the matter. Actual taxes for most properties should be approximately the same as the estimate given on assessment noticesmailed in April.The millage rate for County operations stays the same at 7.40 mills. Rates also remained the same for the recreation and bond funds as well as the service districts established in 2013 that support police, fire and emergency services, development and enforcement, and Loganville emergency medical services. The total millage rate for properties in unincorporated Gwinnett remains the same at 13.75 mills. This rate only covers County government operations; the Gwinnett County Board of Education sets its own millage rate to fund schools. For more information about school taxes, visit www.gwinnett.k12.ga.us.The decision to keep rates the same means that property taxes will generate more revenue than last year due to a general increase in property values. By law, the Tax Assessor must assess the value of residential and commercial property every year based on recent sales of comparable parcels.Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said, “I believe this is the prudent thing to do. While we did what had to be done to work through the economic downturn, there are things we deferred that can’t be put off any longer. We still need to build and staff new fire stations, for example. We can’t take the revenue source for granted, though, and will continue to refine the way we use taxpayer dollars. We will spend every single penny wisely to make Gwinnett County the best it can be – now as well as five and 10 years from now.”During the recession, commissioners reduced the County workforce, held vacant positions open, cut operating budgets, cut or delayed new capital projects, and deferred capital maintenance. The County also absorbed rising costs of most commodities, covered the costs of new legislative and regulatory mandates, and continued to provide core services. And at the same time, more than 50,000 new residents moved into Gwinnett over the past four years.For an interactive online tool that shows estimated property taxes for any Gwinnett property and what those taxes buy, look underWhere Your Property Taxes Go on the Your Money webpage.
