Who is in control?

I'd like to know who is in control or can take control of a totally out of control situation. It seems one bureaucrat feeds off another and everyone just accepts all is okay. They are empowered and entitled to do as they wish with no regard for free enterprise SC businesses and are turning a blind eye to reality and what is right .

We now have a Dnr using our tax monies and shipping jobs to MA when we have SC tax paying companies struggling to pay their bills, employees and taxes in SC.They sell ads competing against tax paying media and try to justify it to feel good.
This is outrageous Read Below!!

We have the Hilton Head SC Chamber of Commerce run by lawyers, not marketing people. They even take this to an extreme and subs out its for-profit media website to Canada taking our money out of the USA as many media companies, newspapers are struggling and going out of business. Local members claim they even violated a fair bidding process. Plus clearly violating IRS non profit tax laws and abuse and corruption on many other fronts.

SC PRT subs out to a private company a 50m marketing contract that clearly needs to understand how every penny of tax payers monies are being spent . Plus selling ads like DNR to cover cost . Are we to believe For profit media does not sell ads to try and cover cost ??? SC PRT hands tax money to Chambers and CVBs in our State as local DMOS without any regard to abuse to those funds. We have studied all irs form 990s for Hilton Head , Charleston and Myrtle beach I suggest everyone and our politicians do the same. Note Bill Miles an employee and ex director salaried at 341k plus add in all perks perhaps over 400k annual pay package . Is this right?? Gov Haley at 106k, our local Mayor at 30k and President Obama at 400k. Note US Chamber President pays no taxes promoting ethical business practices in America salaried at 4.7 million , jet and limo use and God knows what else by all these extreme system abusers that is not revealed on the IRS form 990. To make it even worse the Hilton Head Chamber and its attempted abuse lawyers are now refusing our Foia  request and we had to file a lawsuit. What is this Chamber and its appointed not elected buddy board trying to hide from all of us including members , tax payers and state officials ???

We have submitted a FOIA to the Town of Hilton head at was told 13,000 to make copies ????
We have and will submit more Foia request for all info until we get a clearer picture on all abuses and the exact abuses we already have identified and those behind it.

We need deep investigations by the state and federal authorities on all this to include the IRS, Attorney General , Dept of Justice and FBI.

The deeper we dig the uglier it gets. Houston / SC we have a problem!!!!

Next week my accounting firm is sending a registered return receipt letter informing SC I will no longer pay SC Taxes on my income from my media asset sales. If the State of SC can be in the media business and not pay taxes than why can't I ????? If they dispute my claims or attempt to make me pay taxes, my lawyer has been instructed to take this case to the SC tax courts. This will work hand in hand with our FOIA request and our national IRS whistle blower tax case filed against 3 Chambers and CVBs in SC claiming they are in 100% proven violation of 501-c6 tax codes governing non profits. We have identified more violations that will involve unfair trade, business and competitive practices and damages to others in business who pay taxes and operate within the law.

You've Raised Very Serious Questions

I feel that you have raised some very serious questions about how our Chamber is being run and where the money is being spent to market our island and the businesses that support our Chamber.

Additionally, your questions raise the possibility that the Chamber board is a "hand-picked" board that continues to perpetuate the abuses alleged in your complaints. As such, an independent committee, made up of chamber members, needs to be chosen and convened to address your concerns immediately.

Those are my thoughts and you may advertise them as such.....
