Thousands received this high cost St. George Petition mailer. It's time to ask WHY??

Thousands of Baton Rouge voters just received a high cost mailer from "Our Promising Future, LLC". This corporate structure has provided the funds for the well financed campaign to create a separate city in East Baton Rouge Parish.


WHY...Has the petition been drawn up this way?
WHY...Would anyone want to promote more government?
WHO...Would benefit from this?.... And why are they willing to finance an expensive campaign to promote it.

The spokespeople and sponsors of the campaign have presented themselves as a grassroots effort. The reality is that this high production campaign for separation has been expensive. We have no doubt that some sincere people who believe they are doing the right thing are volunteering in the effort. But it's time that we the taxpayers are told WHY? this effort was launched and who would really benefit from it. 

The original effort was said to be for an independent school district, but nowhere in the current proposal in there a provision and funding for a new school district. Although a new school district is not included in their budget, it is listed as the number one reason to sign the petition in their expensive mailer. In addition to existing East Baton Rouge taxes and government agencies, we do know that this proposal will add more government in the form of at least one additional taxing agency on top of that. New government bureaucracy is in the proposal including an additional city council, an additional police chief, and a city manager that residents will not be allowed to vote for.

WHY...Has the petition been drawn up this way?
WHY...Would anyone want to promote more government?
WHO...Would benefit from this?.... And why are they willing to finance an expensive campaign to promote it.

We encourage the media to ask and find the answers to these questions. Hard working residents need to know the truth. We will see that they get it.
