Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
    Beaufort County's Budgeting process begins with the Great and Annual Beaufort County Commissioner Retreat, where the Commissioners are told and shown and tasked to acknowledge just how much of the public's money is necessary to keep their government afloat. It is during that 2 day process where the commissioners are notified as to how many new and additional employees will need to be hired; how many vehicles will need to be replaced; just how much new construction will need to be accomplished.

    During this process, Beaufort County Commissioners sit quietly, soaking in this great knowledge of so much need that appears to be growing leaps and bounds, and yes, Covid was cited on multiple occasions as the culprit, which is understandable, and as a Beaufort County Commissioner, I get that. Covid is a harsh realty in health, as well as political necessity for others.

    Another reality that must be considered is that that is afar better than even chance that 2022, probably by 2023, there will be a harsh recession gripping Beaufort County, possibly coupled with the hyper inflation component, a condition that generations of Americans have never experienced. So you to ask yourself: Is growing Beaufort County's government the best answer for a brighter future, or should the belt of realty, what is truly real, be tightened a bit rather than this continuance of expansion that has been a real condition in Beaufort County for nearly the last 8 years?

    This makes for an interesting conundrum of governing here locally because sitting on this board for there sits commissioners with expansively diverse understandings of how government should work, from: 1) Those that will vote or every expansion of government with very little thought attached; 2) Those who work to grow government, but work diligently to that purpose, and will work equally in explaining that expansion; 3) And then there are those commissioners, who perform constant oversight, will examine policy to greater efficiency, and then will move to shrink spending by controlling waste and the expansion of "government need".

    In essence, the great diversity within these Beaufort County represent YOU, for the public gets the government they disserve; that is a happy or cruel reality in this Representative Republic, and only the electorate can control its outcome, their collective futures within this promised purpose of self-government.

    In closing, there will be greater explanation regarding this process that your local is tasked, and sworn to perform. Stay with BCN, and we will provide hours of information by video since these meetings are recorded for posterity and will be exhibited on Beaufort County NOW. Also, if you actually care, please be aware that this is an election year, and know an remember ... more here to come.

Should Beaufort County's Commissioners fund more projects, while adding to the county government work force, or, should these servants to the People work to cut wasteful spending, and give the taxpayers of Beaufort County a break on taxes, possibly starting a new purpose for their existence?
  Yes, please spend more; so much needs to be done in Beaufort County, and we need more government employees doing it.
  No, please work to be frugal; more mindful that this is the public's money, and return to taxpayers what is not absolutely needed.
  Why should I pay attention to stuff?
