Letter: The status quo isn’t working
St Johns, FL
Early Voting Has Begun!
As my fellow Historic City News readers are heading to the polls to vote in this important primary, I am hoping you will remember a few things:
• All five county commissioners voted to raise your taxes last year.
• Regardless of their previous votes to keep taxes low, none of the commissioners stayed true to conservative values.
• A decrease in revenue for the county does not mean your taxes went down.
Simply put, the value of homes went down 30-50% and the millage rate has gone up steadily since 2008. That is most definitely a tax increase!
The status quo isn’t working. It’s time for new and innovative thinking.
