Oops. Remember all those savings that the F.A.I.R. plan was supposed to have made for county taxpayers? Well, maybe not so much:
“The next line says last year I paid $530, this year I pay $626. Next line, I paid $432, that’s public safety; this year I pay $711. The bottom line, I paid a total of $1,943, this year I pay $1,920,” he said. That’s $23 in savings.
Now, keep in mind that the schools will be needing to recoup the loss of revenue from the F.A.I.R. plan. Folks take pride in their schools and expect them to perform well, so of course, they’ll pay the extra taxes to see that loss recovered. And of course, we’re still betting that sales taxes under perform state tax revenues in order for this to have been a good plan.
Bravo, Maggie. Bravo County Republicans.
