Homestead vs. Business 2-tier taxing system in the City of Kingston
Let's talk about Homestead vs. Business 2-tier taxing system in the City of Kingston. The only way to equalize these 2 tax rates is to drastically cut the Kingston budget. If any of the 7 candidates talk about equalizing Homestead and Business taxes, they should be challenged by asking them "What is the priority of drastic budget cuts that they propose?" My priority of budget cuts are 1) cut the Paid Fire Dept. the most, 2) cut the DPW duplicate management positions proposed by Rich Cahill, 3) do not cut the Police.
