Writer Seeks "Leader" in Fight Against Assessor's Increased Property
web posted July 21, 2011
I, like everyone else was stunned at the reassessment of my property in
Edgefield County. For example, I bought a piece of land full of gullies
and a beaver swamp 10 months ago for $1220 per acre for hunting
purposes in a depressed market, land prices have fallen more since
then. Would you believe the assessment is about twice that according to

Somebody call the meeting and I’ll be there. We need a leader!
