What do you make of this stance on taxes?
Being categorically against raising taxes, on principle, is one thing. Being generally ambivalent toward raising taxes (e.g., "the time has come") but blockading crucial funds for a troubled school system due to a petty feud is quite another.
It seems fairly obvious that Mr. Adams' support for property tax relief is targeted at his largely senior voting demographic. And of course it helps fixed-income seniors in East Ridge avoid the bitter pill of a tax increase.
But what about the rest of East Ridge? Will these recent actions and statements by their City Manager and County Commissioner, taken together, make sense to them?
