Warren County officials have formed a Political Action Committee called “For The Wheel Tax” to encourage residents to vote in favor of the wheel tax.“I’m not sure we had to, but we wanted to just in case any questions were raised about us campaigning for the wheel tax to be passed,” said County Executive John Pelham of forming the committee. Pelham is chairman of the committee, with administrative assistant Carol Cantrell as treasurer. The goal is to raise approximately $1,000 through county commissioners and other private donations.Funds have already been used to purchase 33 signs in support of the wheel tax and to pay for one advertisement in the Southern Standard.None of the funds used in the campaigning effort were taken from taxes, says Pelham.“Every penny of the money raised has been through donations,” he said.
