2009 Tax Pledge Candidates

Yes or no: “I pledge to only approve a city budget that results in a decrease in the property tax rate.”

  • Bill St Laurent – YES
  • Jack Thorsen – YES
  • Nancy Clayburgh – YES
  • Esther Kennedy (said she would “do everything in her power to lower taxes”
  • > Jerry Hejtmanek – YES *
  • > Ken Smith – YES, that is what we are fighting for.
  • * We recently received an email from Jerry Hejtmanek saying “On second thought, since I feel these pledges are disingenious, I should not have made the pledge. I was rushing to the airport when I send my YES message and while it may be good politics and a important goal, it can also cause the wrong decisions to be made. I hope you understand my distinction.?”
