Alex Burton Is Against Any Tax Increase

first_imgAlex Burton Is Against Any Tax IncreaseCity Council At-Large candidate Alex Burton stated today he is absolutely against raising taxes after several current members of the council stated they would consider raising taxes to help the city’s finances.“The taxpayers of Evansville should not be roped into a political game.  Property taxes continue to rise and we shouldn’t stack an increase in the local income tax on top of that.  I’m not convinced that the Mayor and current City Council has exhausted all possibilities to control spending,” he said.“Burton believes that it is imperative that the City focus on the basic needs of our city. He also believes that public safety officials must be fully equipped and adequately trained.”“2016 and beyond is dependent on what this current council and administration can agree on.  We cannot continue to kick the can down the road as it relates to our city’s finances.  I urge both the administration and current City Council  members to make decisions to improve the health of our city’s finances.” Burton said.Alex continues to campaign on the basis of teamwork, good policy, and the future of Evansville.  “He understands that in order for Evansville to be its best we must learn from the past, make sound decisions in the present, and prepare for the future”.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
