Taxation with Representation
Getting what you pay for
From the April, 2009 issue
On April 15--Tax Day--two hundred people gathered on the Diag to protest taxation. We called five county commissioners to ask if they'd been persuaded to cut taxes.
With the county facing a projected $26 million drop in tax revenue over the next two years, it's not surprising the thought hadn't crossed their minds. "If we cut taxes, that just means we've got to cut services and employees," says Democratic board chair Rolland Sizemore. "Taxation is the way we pay for services."
