Well things are getting measurably worse.
In 2014 we had the 5th highest effective residential property tax rate among the 50 largest cities in the United States. See 5th highest taxes.
In 2015 we had the 3rd highest. See Climbing to the top.
For 2017 we were the 2nd highest.
Remember that most of the quality of life bonds have not been issued yet nor have most of the school district bonds.
We deserve better
