The Race for the 17th District State House

Georgiana Vines has an interesting article in today’s Sentinel about the race for the State House seat being vacated by Jamie Hagood. The winner of the Republican primary will, in all likelihood, be the person going to Nashville.

It appears as taxes remain the top issue in this race, with each candidate accusing the other of supporting higher taxes. It is interesting to note, however, that Frank Niceley is refusing to pay a wheel tax in his home in Jefferson County. Niceley acknowledged that this is “technically correct,” but that he plans to pay the wheel tax. Yeah right.

Full discloser: I work for Jim Bletner and fully intend to support him.
