Reed, Fleming React to Scott’s Goal to Cut Property Taxes

TWO INCUMBENT BURLINGTON CITY COUNCILMEN WERE QUICK TO RESPOND TO CANDIDATE TIM SCOTT’S COMMENT THAT ONE OF HIS GOALS…IF ELECTED…WOULD BE TO CUT PROPERTY TAXES.

BOB FLEMING…WHO ALSO MADE IT THRU TUESDAY’S PRIMARY…SAYS EVERYONE WOULD LIKE TO SEE PROPERTY TAXES REDUCED, BUT SOMETIMES YOU’RE FACED WITH SITUATIONS WHERE YOU HAVE TO RAISE THEM, EVEN IF YOU DON’T LIKE THE IDEA.

 

CHRIS REED…ALSO A CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION NEXT MONTH…AGREES THAT BURLINGTON’S PROPERTY TAX RATE IS TOO HIGH AND HE FEELS THE CITY COUNCIL SHOULD BE ABLE TO HOLD THE LINE NEXT YEAR…BUT HE ALSO TOLD THE KBUR “TALK SHOW” AUDIENCE THAT CERTAIN SITUATIONS COULD REQUIRE AN INCREASE.

 

SCOTT…A FORMER COUNCILMAN AND MAYOR…WON THE PRIMARY, WHILE POLITICAL NEWCOMER BECKY SHOCKLEY FINISHED SECOND. CURRENT MAYOR JIM DAVIDSON WAS THIRD…FLEMING & REED PLACED 4TH AND 5TH, RESPECTIVELY…AND FORMER COUNCILMAN MIKE CAMPBELL WAS 6TH. ALL WILL COMPETE FOR THREE SEATS IN THE NOVEMBER 5TH ELECTION.
