Did I miss the mention of ever rising Property Taxes in this article? Mark Henry and Council can brag about having reduced the "Tax Rates" all they want to. Most of us know that essentially when combined with increasing property Values, they are doing nothing but presenting a false image.

Demand significantly lower Tax Rates. It's a "No-Brainer".

Amen to that Carol Dean! You beat me to it! It seems the Central Appraisal District intends to tax the former residents of Galveston right off the island! And where will that windfall of tax money go? Do we yearn for increased school spending to continue production of sub-par graduates?

The GCCAD are NOT exclusively responsible for rising taxes. The Texas State Comptroller's Office sets the boundaries. Also, local taxing entities are involved. Very few people attend the meetings when the new taxes are discussed and voted on. ie. Schools, roads, city, etc. These meetings usually occur on the September time range. Do NOT let your local or County Government mislead you.
