Letter to city council: Rick Hartley, Republican State Committeeman - Duval County

September 28, 2010

Dear City Council Members:

In case you haven't noticed, times are difficult. Everyday citizens are faced with difficult decisions about their finances. Most everyone I know is working harder and earning less. No, we are not in a depression at my house but I am not waiting until I am put in the street to wake up to reality and tighten my belt. I know many families that are dealing with really hard times. Every informed citizen I know is very concerned about the economy.

To raise the millage rate 9% is an arrogant slap in the face. A council member that is not seeking re-election told me that I don't understand; the tough choice is to raise taxes in spite of the citizen's outcry. No Councilman, the right choice is to cut spending now! Next March those Council Members voting yes will wonder what happened to their election prospects.

I won't forget who voted for tax increases come next spring. Every business, every household is cutting expenses. When will the City of Jacksonville? I propose that the Concerned Taxpayers of Duval County Budget be adopted.

As the elected representative of the Republican voters of Duval County, I urge you to reconsider.
