Now, we already knew that there was another Senior Lankey tax increase for the 4th consecutive year of his stewardship (you can see what that is and what it does to you in the previous posts). So, rather that bore you what we already know or commenting on his Blah..Blah..Blah presention in front of the choir, I'll just say a few things:
1. Former Councilman Wayne Mascola should of never bet $1 that there would be no tax increase in an election year under this Oligarchy but still, Lankey should give him the $1 as a souvenir just for showing up.
2. Recognize that numbers are boring stuff to present and listen to but maybe it's a good idea, if just for aesthetic purposes, that you make sure those sitting behind you on camera aren't taking catnaps during your presentation. Kind of signals that you're Blah..Blah..Blah rhetoric isn't working.
Anyhoo, you gotta appreciate how much the Local Dems don't really care about you even in an election year.
Tax increases all around from every taxing entity. The 'Out-of-Control' $pending over there on Mythomania Lane cost you another 5.6-cents taking the rate up to $2.988, the County promised that your taxes would go up by less than 1% and they actually went up by over 4% and let's not forget Senior Lankey (now 195 days into the Calendar Year without an approved budget) going up another 1.5%.
Add up all that $tabilization and Your 2017 Property tax rate is going up to $5.386 for 2017, which is up 11-Cents or 2.1% over last years $5.276.
Welcome to Edison - make sure you get out and vote for more of the same!
