The guy has never once lowered our tax rate. He has raised it every year except the year that he inherited a 300 million dollar surplus from Miller.
Regardless, why can't you separate his personal problems from his politics? This has nothing to do with politics.
Were not costs lowered in certain areas?
Were some taxes rescinded?
By lower- I will clarify- lower than the average increases under the previous Mayer.
One thing we know about cities- Taxes always increase. It is at what rate they increase, why they increase that is important.
He saved you 50 bucks a year if you own a car, but charges you more if you want to use any city rec facilities.
He is raising taxes less fast is quite a different statement than saying that he lowered your taxes.
Well I could always live with taxes rising at a lower rate.
As to the 50, I am doubtful on that number.
