In a recent interview on KFYO, Mayor Tom Martin said this about taxes.

“I’m not voting to raise taxes.  I never had, above what the voters have approved, and I will not do it in the future.”

On KFYO, Challenger Glen Robertson had this response:

“I’ve got a different philosophy.  I think it’s completely irresponsible to state right now that if elected I would never vote for a property tax increase, because you don’t know what you’re going to run into.”

Robertson said he’s opposed to excessive taxation, and he said he wants to shift the burden from utility fees back toward property taxes,  He said that would be a more honest and equitable taxation.
