Tony St. Romaine's Insatiable Lust for Other People's Money
As if to buck reality, and to solidify the "most unpopular city managers in Columbia" title, Tony St. Romaine
has decided to draw a line in the sand on behalf of tax increases.
is throwing his
full weight and support behind the personal property tax increase.
Somebody has to stick up for unwanted, unwarranted tax increases, no?
, some might remember, was the same city manage who backed universally disliked policies and ideas like the red light cameras, the use of $3 million in city reserve funding to buy up property for private developers (the worse kind of corporate cronyism), and the erection of an opulently expensive 10 story parking garage downtown (given the sobriquet, Garagezilla), which is more popular among those wishing to commit suicide (two people, in one year's time, have leaped to their death off of the structure) then it is among the general public.
A lover of zapping personal income from Columbians, Romaine
, based on superfluous facts, is hell-bent on taking other people's money purely for the purposes of funding future 10 story, 15 story and 20 story parking garages and 25 more red light cameras.
