Tax pledges

To the Editor:

Any public officeholder willing to make this pledge:

You will not support, and will actively oppose, local spending that will raise property taxes above 3.75 percent of property values.

You will not support, and will actively oppose, local spending predicated on new household formation if the new household property tax rate will be below “break even” – that is, would need to be subsidized annually by property taxpayers of existing homes.
