Tax pledge

To the Editor:

Now that the tax cap bill failed to pass, let’s show the lobbying groups that fought against the bill the power of the voters.

We are disgusted that our real estate taxes go up and up and up, regardless of the value of our homes.

Here is a course of action all of us who wanted the tax cap bill to pass – make a Grover Norquist-like pledge.

In the future, we pledge to never, ever vote for a tax increase referendum. That’s never ever.
