As individual taxpayers disbursed over two states and five counties, the influence we each have on local issues is diluted because of our geography. It is further diluted because of our high percentage of non-resident property owners unable to vote.
Politicians do, however, recognize the strength of our collective interests through the LGA. The LGA is the single body that represents the interests of property owners from all five counties and both states who contribute a significant amount to the county revenue. It is our membership base that results in our recognition and allows us to influence the decision-makers for Lake Gaston NC and Lake Gaston VA.
