If Linda Shaw voted to place more than $600 million of new debt for Guilford County on an election ballot, and the bonds passed, does the possibility exist that she may be a little bit hypocritical on the budget?

...commissioners are also thumbing their noses
at the notion of adopting any budget that remotely resembles Fox's proposal.

Commissioner Linda Shaw, for instance,
who's the vice chairman of the board and who's been a supporter of both Alston and Fox
on several controversial issues this year,
has said that, not only would she not vote for a 6.32-cent tax increase
– she wouldn't vote for any tax increase this year.

When asked about her position on a potential tax increase in the 2011-2012 budget,
Shaw was unequivocal.

"I will not support a tax increase," Shaw said.

...Shaw added, there are still ways to cut more.

Shaw said the county can be run effectively in 2011-2012 without a tax increase.
