I completely agree with you that Politico’s in general, from here to D.C., have a hard time resisting the over spending of our tax dollars.
“If MIPO truly represents all property owners, well this property owner would like to see a higher standard of efficient city operations and NOT relative reduction in city budgets, that were built upon a spending spree that ballooned in the early 2000's in excess of growth. Just look at your tax bill from 2000 to 2006, excluding SOH. As well, as the increase in percentage of tax dollars now going to the city relative to the county.”
To further understand your statement above, “We the Taxpayers” must understand the spending spree that ballooned during the excess of growth years, was based on false real estate values that resulted from the mortgage fraud, going on here as well as the rest of the Country.
Our trusted government officials who determine the taxable value of your real estate, were, in my opinion, well aware that real estate does not appreciate thirty to fifty percent in value per year, and should be made accountable by refunding “We the Taxpayers “ every nickel of over payment. In addition, every government agency should have their budgets reduced to the year 2000 level, and let them figure out a way to live with it, instead of us trying to figure out a way to keep up with it.
If our “new kids on the block” cannot find a way out of the spending addiction our City is in, then it is time “We the Taxpayers” sign a petition to vote for an end to the City. We were fine before we became a City, and we will survive without it.
