Affordable Property Taxes

It’s reasonable for us to contribute via property taxes. Through them we buy things we could never purchase individually – a street system, a school system, fire and police services. But property taxes must be affordable, and they must be sustainable.

And, if you’re a renter you may not be paying that 56% increase directly – but you’re seeing it in the sharp increase in your rents.
