Growth and Taxes

A current hot topic in Washington County is the increased property tax revenues recently allotted to the Washington County School District.

Growth is expensive, especially when it comes to paying for schools, roads and other infrastructure. People here in Washington County are finding out just how expensive it is to
live here as a result of uncontrolled growth. Funding education in the community is essential, and there should be no compromises made. However, quality growth planning can help minimize the need for tax increases and, if elected, I will work hard to plan better and keep the county's expenses to a minimum so future tax increases won't be needed.
