ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The leader of a taxpayer watchdog group in Albany says he's not giving up on his fight over the way property evaluations were done in 2007.

Even after the Georgia Court of Appeals reversed a trial court's decision, which essentially dismissed a case against the Dougherty tax Director and Board of Tax Assessors, Richard Thomas says he's not giving up.

He says property owners were denied access to the administrative process set in place to hear appeals.  Thomas said, "We're disappointed, we're not discouraged. This is like a tennis match. We've won one match, they've won one match, so we're even really. So our recourse here is to , of course, appeal it and take it to the Supreme Court which we fully intend to do with the support of the public."
