Mr. Griffin, The economy is still on a shaky ground; and we, the middle class, are struggling to survive. All we hear left and right is tax increases at the federal level, residential real estate, slapping a fee on car registration, etc. Why can't the local government find innovated ways for trimming even more uncesseary expenses/projects and using the collected taxes/revenue more wisely? The middle class has to always carry the financial burden, can we just get a break?
We have kept the tax burden on the average homeowner the same for the last seven years, recognizing your point. At the same time, we are trying to preserve those programs that make Fairfax a good place to live, work and play.
