Dear fellow tax hikers: we at Republicans for Higher Taxes are pleased to start a new feature for the new year. Every so often, we are going to profile some of the up-and-coming tax hikers of the Hamilton County Republican Party.
Today we start with Sycamore School Board Member Diane Adamec. Ms. Adamec is a fantastic tax increaser who has already built an impressive record of raising taxes on the citizens of Blue Ash, Montgomery, and parts of Sycamore, Symmes, Loveland, and Evandale. Consider High Tax Adamec's record:
1) Organized volunteers to pass two big school levies (the first failed, 2nd passed) for the Sycamore Schools in 2004, and bragged about it on her campaign literature in her 2005 School Board run. The School Board has since stated that their huge continuing levy they tried to pass in August 2004 was not necessary to achieve their goals, but it didn't stop High Tax Adamec from campaigning for it.
2) Supported the Leis/Pepper/Portune Sales Tax increase in 2007 for the new jail and $600 million in programs.
3) Is now campaigning for a permanent tax increase for Sycamore residents. The School Board claims this is a mere renewal, but this is taking a limited 5-year levy that expires soon and making it permanent!
4) A true tax-and-spend Republican, Diane donated $100 to Virgil Lovitt, our 2008 Tax Hiker of the Year and endorsed candidate for State Representative. Additionally, she and her husband are active leaders in the Blue Ash Republican Club, the pro-tax machine run by Rick Bryan, Jim Sumner, and Lee Czerwonka.
Only in office for 3 years, Diane Adamec has compiled an impressive record of supporting higher taxes and big spending hikes. These are the kind of leaders who should be the future of the Republican Party. We endorse the Sycamore School Tax increase. We endorse High Tax Adamec's re-election to the Sycamore School Board this November and look forward to seeing more from her in the coming years.
