Everyone must pay fair share

Property assessments are starting to arrive and the anticipation of increased property taxes is gaining momentum.

Property assessments are starting to arrive and the anticipation of increased property taxes is gaining momentum.

I think we can breathe a huge sign of relief knowing that as a community united in solidarity as never before in our history, we prevented a huge catastrophe by rejecting the proposed mega water project.

Reasonable taxes are inevitable and we must now get on with resolving other critical issues in our community.

First and foremost we need to replace our antiquated police station in order to better accommodate those men and women who are dedicated to our well being.

We also have to do something to plug the loophole that has been enabling multiple families to live in a single residence and thereby evade their tax responsibilities.

Taxes can be bearable just as long as everyone is paying their fair share.
