Thank you Mr. Mafrige and GCCT for being a watchdog over our tax Dollars. After reading this article I will be casting a vote in favor of the 2 cent tax increase.
How is this different from a previous story?It says smart use of refinancing has resulted in an ability to lower tax rates by 3 cents.That's good work, and should be applauded.Then it says that voters should approve a 2 cent tax rate that will go to raises and upkeep, and says those voters will still be saving 1 cent rate out of the 3.True, but most people would say that all things equal, 3 things in hand is really more than 1 thing in hand. The reason then is not to just save the touted 1 cent for taxpayers, but to keep some money to use for worthy things.Why not just say, straight up, we could give you 3 cents back, but want to keep 2 cents of that to pay for genuine needs?
Teacher raises or Administration raises, also? Inquiring minds want to know.
1 cent lower per $100, or 3 cents lower per $100... let's see...which would I prefer? Duhhhh!
