11. Raised property taxes for 40% of homeowners, despite plummeting property values....
Last year, he pushed through a budget that raised property taxes for 40 percent of homeowners, despite plummeting property values, to avoid laying off firefighters and other public employees. Yet, most county workers are getting raises this year.

Haven't a problem with that -- we need to be taxing the rich --

returning to progressive taxation --

too much of a burden on property owners, imo --
