Today, many of you probably got a mailer from my opponent lying about my record, and slandering my name. So, to be very clear, in my time as your Councilman I have never voted to raise any tax rates on any Cecil County citizen. In the 4 budgets I’ve voted on, twice I have voted to lower tax rates, and twice I have voted to keep tax rates the same. The only way you would have had to pay any more in taxes under my watch is if your property values went up, which is a decision made by state property value assessors.
This shameful, dishonest attack from my opponent is a pathetic attempt to turn the community, that I have been proudly serving my entire life, against me. It’s also meant to cover up the fact that he has no meaningful experience in our community, or any kind of qualifications to lead it. He’s just a politician who wants to win an office.
We need to keep self-serving, lying politicians out of our County Government and out of our community. Unlike my opponent, I have been proud to serve Cecil County for decades, most recently as your County Councilman for the last 4 years. In the Republican primary on July 19th, I hope I can count on your vote and we can continue making our county a better place! I have a lifetime commitment to our county and our families. Thank you for your support.
