This Email Says it All on How Residents Feel about Tax Rates Going Up.....

I will not vote to raise year-over-year millage tax rates on Escambia County Property Owners, haven't done it for 10 years as an elected official, I'm not starting now....


I heard it when I campaigned last year, and I hear it today.  People are fed up with tax increases, and they are angry at the cavalier attitude some government bureaucrats and elected officials display when they say "We need more money, just raise the property tax millage rate!"  People have had it!   This email is emblematic of the sentiment I hear.......
