$272,768.00 = Expected Administrative Expenses for TDA in 2008-2009

$272,768.00 < 10% of $2,739,290

Dear Mr. Kaplan:

I appreciate your efforts to ensure that Forsyth County money is being used properly. However the numbers don't support your position. Not only that, but going by the numbers alone, the TDA is indeed one of our community's best investments. I am sure you love Forsyth County as much as I do. Please redirect your love and attention to other ways to better Forsyth County.
