There have been several myths regarding taxes, fees and raises that have been circulated in this election. We present here documented facts to correct these myths.
These Key Facts Emerge:
- Taxes and fee increases were imposed during my opponent’s administration
- Salary raises were given by my opponent to city administrators… including himself.
The biggest difference between my opponent and myself with respect to these matters is simply that I made the very conscious decision to tell you about them as they occurred and why they were necessary.
Transparency has been a guiding principle of my six years in office. Making these matters public has been, at times, politically painful. However, I have not and will not hide anything from the people of this City.
