Our commissioners have forgotten they were elected to represent and serve the Hamilton County citizens. The citizens cast thousands of votes for the commissioners with the understanding (based on campaign promises!) that each commissioner if elected would listen to and conduct county business in accordance with the wishes of the voter.
What happened to the campaign promises? Why are they giving tax incentives to for profit businesses at the expense of higher taxes for the non profit citizens?
They are throwing up a smokescreen by mentioning existing means of tax relief for senior citizens. I have never heard anyone publicize the exact number of seniors in Hamilton County who actually qualify and benefit yearly for the “senior tax relief.”
County mayor, make that information known! Most of us seniors will not qualify, yet those same seniors struggle to make ends meet on fixed incomes. Let us see the truth. Back up your claims.
Commissioners, I remind you that we elected you to voice our opinion and vote our wishes – not your personal beliefs.
