About thirty Tea Party members and concerned citizens showed up on the steps of the Dare County Admin Building this afternoon to protest proposed tax increases to help fund the $4.1 million budget shortfall.  This comes on top of the many emails that the Commissioners have been receiving on this topic over the past week.  More pictures of this event can found on the Outer Banks Tea Party’s website

Several Tea Party members questioned Chairman Warren Judge about the proposed increases as he entered the building.  We have the video. Our ace cameraman, TheRepairMan71, shot this footage.

For an update on how the Workshop went, check out Outer Banks Voice story.  There will be another workshop on May 3rd, immediately following the regularly scheduled BOC meeting.  The final budget will be presented May 17th and will be followed by a public hearing.
