DON'T OVER-TAX KETCHIKAN'S
By Dan McQueen
January 19, 2007
What is the Ketchikan Gateway Borough thinking? The 15% increase
is ABSURD! I can't think of a single thing that I've done to
my house to make it "OVERNIGHT" worth 15% more! As
property owners in other towns (Portland,Ore. for one) have had
to accept, property prices are falling!
House buyers aren't buying
houses nor is Ketchikan's population growing.Which is the main
reason not to OVER-TAX THE CITIZENS!
This is just another Back-door
attempt to raise taxes. For what now?
I remember a time when everyone
running for government office did so on NO NEW TAXES!
The average KGB tax-payers
wages didn't go up 15% -- Fuel Has! Food Has!
GIVE US A BREAK FOR CRIPES
Why should you think the value
of every building has gone UP?
It's time for some one with
some common sense to run things!
