Property owners officially snubbed by the people they put into office
For all of you who thought your state legislator was going to stand up for you because they were a cosponsor on House Bill 76, the Property Tax Independence Act, guess again. Unless you live in Rep. Toepel, Vereb or Painter's district, you were bamboozled, because they were the only three Montgomery County reps who voted yes to an amendment yesterday that would have put HB 76 on the floor for a vote, even if it was wrapped in HB 1189. Painter was the only Dem to vote in favor. I hope all you registered Democrats remember that come spring when the primary rolls around. All I can say now is, it's on!
