To the right, credit wect.com, your town manager makes $110,00 per year.
Below that, the most of us here in Tabor City, as of 2016, average $20,000 per year. And trust me you work a lot harder than a town manager.
Your average home price, $89,000, well below the state average.
And the chart below that, home sales here over the last many years. One thing you should note, with the RAPID expansion of the WAREHOUSES in town over the last few years, you see a steep decline in the price of homes and the number of homes selling.
REASON: No one wants to live in a a town full of warehouses. They might want to work here, but they don’t want to live here.
So a good portion of you are living below the poverty level, working in a warehouse (maybe) for a millionaire. Your home is worth CRAP and if you decide to move you will get JACK Squat for it.
So the Town Manager gets rich, lives on the lake in a $350,000 home.
You get less than $10 per hour and your home is worth almost 1/2 the rest of the state.
So how about Loris. They don’t have warehouses on every corner and semi trucks all over town. Just one quick clip of Loris below, the average income is almost double Tabor City and the home price is almost double.
So what are we paying the Town Management for?
You can do nothing or you can vote in the next election for someone new.
You can do nothing or you can run for office.
Just don’t cry when the next warehouse is on your street or next to your home.
