My property tax payment is a house payment. You are driving people out of town. Then who will pay your bloody taxes?

I will not vote for any member who supports a tax increase. The CITY NEEDS to CUT it's FAT as well as the MAYOR's projects. I think all Jacksonville appointed and elected positions are over paid. Stop picking on city maintenance and safety personnel, start by taking a 20% cut in administration personnel pay and benefits. I am sick of threats by the mayor and city council to cut personnel under the administration level. Let's see REAL fat and waste cut at the administration level.

A property tax increase is simply a punishment to anyone who owns a home and that is unfair. If the city and its government can't cut the waste and balance their budget then a sales tax increase should be considered. That would be a fair way for everyone living in the city to share the burden of government waste. Then I truly believe that the socialist who are presently running our government want to end home ownership for the poor and middle class, by making home ownership so expensive that only the rich can afford it. I'm all for supporting city services but the cost of those services should be shared by everyone who uses those services, not just us homeowners and the only way for that to happen is with a sales tax increase not a property tax increase, in fact property taxes should be lowered since the value of our homes has suffered a major decline of the last few years. Wake up Jacksonville before it is too late, contact your city officials and let them know you do not support their unfair taxing agenda.
