'Super Tuesday' Voters Will Decide Questions in Monroe County

'Super Tuesday' Voters Will Decide Questions in Monroe County

Gingrich, Paul, Santorum and Romney won't be the only choices here in Central Georgia on March 6, Super Tuesday.

In Monroe County, people will decide whether to raise more than $30 million that will be split among the county and the cities of Forsyth and Culloden. Among other things, the money would pay for water and sewer improvements, road and bridge construction, library upgrades and a new emergency radio system.

Of course, voters everywhere in the state can vote on Georgia's Republican presidential primary, which includes Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum and several other candidates.
