Promises about Taxes on Carlos-O-Meter

Cut property taxes

“I will cut the tax rate by eliminating the Alvarez tax increases. Our government is just too big and too expensive. Taxpayers want and deserve a government we can afford. We need to eliminate duplication, eliminate unfilled positions and focus on essential services.”

Take back raises

"We must take back the raises that Carlos Alvarez gave. With more than 70 percent of the County’s operating budget comprised of salaries and benefits, this budget can’t be balanced otherwise.”

Cut the mayor's salary and benefits

"I'm going to cut the salary and benefits of the mayor by 50 percent."

Create Seniors First Trust Fund

“I will create a Seniors First Trust Fund to assure that the elderly continue to have access to warm meals and I will extend the low-income seniors property tax rebate program of $100 for next year.”
