Our property taxes are increasing faster than inflation without a rate increase because of ever-increasing tax valuations.

Increase property taxes. Increase sales taxes. Rendering to Caesar makes for energetic responses.
I oppose the rise in property taxes proposed by the Kent City Council to balance the city's budget for the following reasons:
In a city that houses the fourth largest manufacturing complex in the United States, our Kent City Council would have us all believe that it's the garbage trucks that are ravaging our roads – and not the overwhelming number of huge, lumbering 16- and 18-wheelers used by the Valley's businesses.
I read a disturbing article about Kent officials closing down a service run by Sharon Carter since 2008 that feeds 3.000 hungry residents per month for no other reason than too much traffic in the neighborhood.
