Well, if you have an educated opinion, please offer it. There are some on Council who really do want to hear what we want. They would love a fresh idea...a new solution, because, their backs are against the wall right now. You can garner some knowledge at meetings like Civic. On the other hand, if you choose to remain ignorant, please keep your opinions to yourself and please, please don't vote in Nov. It's your choice.

My neighbor said to me, "You know this City Council doesn't think we are on to them." I said, tell me more. My neighbor said, "Well, if City revenue doesn't increase the City will have to lay-off City employees and that will effect City services, Parks will close, Police & Fire lay-offs, less Code-enforcement and that will eventually lead to blight, which will lead to lower property values, you know, our homes will be worth less, and then property appraisals will be lowered by the Lee County Tax Appraiser and that will lead to lower property taxes. It will be a win, win for us." So I said, you think blight is good? My neighbor said, "it worked for my brother in Detroit, his taxes went down 50 percent." You know, you just can't fix stupid!

The citizens have no say in the tax diversification plans. There will be no voting on a ballot and the council will decide what is the best in their opinions. The matter will be over and implemented before the fall elections. They do not want input. It is a done deal we can only sit back and empty our wallets .
