Dear fellow tax hikers, our good friends David Pepper, Todd Portune, and Mike Brown badly need our help this Wednesday morning. Commissioners Pepper and Portune are working overtime to raise taxes in Hamilton County so Mike Brown can take more money from Hamilton County residents. The 2nd and final hearing on Portune's tax hike plan is on Feb. 17th at 10:00 AM. We call on our vast movement to converge on this hearing to tell our Commissioners that we want to give Mike Brown more of our money.
It is vitally important that we find at least one tax to raise. Pepper and Portune both agree that their good friend Mike Brown deserves more tax dollars, they just don't agree how. Pepper wants to raise property taxes while Portune wants a Sales Tax hike. We say let's raise both! We need to do more to make our voices known. We were terribly embarrassed last week at the first hearing when not one person spoke in favor of tax increases.
Come on you tax hikers! We need you to step up now for higher taxes. What kind of county would we be if we can't provide Mike Brown and the Reds with a second stadium tax hike? If we don't raise taxes then the government might have to cut spending or declare a bankruptcy that would void the stadium lease deal that has greatly enriched the Brown family. We can't have that!
We must take advantage of the great tax-and-spend majority that Leslie Ghiz helped provide for us. Ghiz's endorsement of Democrat David Pepper is a big reason why our county is run by tax-hiking Democrats. We must take advantage of this majority while it lasts. Taxes must go up! We need you to deliver this message on Wednesday. Tax us more!
