I agree with some of the proposed cuts like parks and community centers but am concerned with the property tax increase. We have so many families struggling to hold on to their homes with lost jobs and reduced incomes that an increase in taxes could be the end of them.

As you know property owner are not the sole users of the county services so why would you put the burden of support on their backs?
