I find it interesting that Mr. Fred Straub penned a letter to the editor in support of the $140 million bond without disclosing his vested interest in the issue. Not only did Fred work on Chairman Oz Nesbitt’s transition team, he is also the chairman of the SPLOST subcommittee and therefore has a vested interest in how we allocate SPLOST dollars.

While everyone is entitled to an opinion on this matter, I do expect full disclosure from anyone who is responsible for spending our tax dollars. The term “ringer” comes to mind.
