One thought on “Blount County 8th in total debt & 11th highest per capita debt among Tennessee counties

  1. Numbers are scary, and they glass up most folk’s eyes when you allude to ’em. A major statistic you might ponder, is that two weeks after commissioner A & B votes for a Tax RATE increase, no one will remember who voted for what–and besides … ain’t it better that the newly elected saved us from Nancy Pelosi & Obamacare & Socialism, rather than to worry about local problems? Spewing out FAUX news buzzwords gets more mileage than worrying with local facts & policy.

    The “per capita” datum doesn’t tell you whether the debt-payer is living in an apartment, at home with the parents, or struggling with house-on-property. Divide by num# of households.
