If you visit the website for Palm Beach County Lower Taxes Now, you will see the statement below and most likely determine right away that this is a valid and worthy cause.
"To stop wasteful government spending in Palm Beach County"
But if for some reason you are not convinced so easily, perhaps a peek at some of the data might persuade you. Now organizing in Palm Beach County, Lower Taxes Now will bring its own special method of exposing where all the money goes and providing a platform for ordinary citizens to interact with government to prioritize spending and debt.
Please visit our new website at http://pbclowertaxesnow.com/
Join as a member, read the blogs, contribute a story, help us organize our new board and tell your friends. There are links to websites (like www.MyFloridaCFO.com )where you can access reports showing where your tax dollars are going, how much elected officials make compared to the private sector, how much taxes have gone up over time in your city, how much debt your city and county has and so much more.
Lower Taxes Now has no party affiliation whatsoever and is in fact made up of members of just about every political party. Our mission statement applies equally to all elected officials of every political party.
As every level of government balloons in size all around us, ordinary citizens are losing more and more of their freedom and liberty. We are now called upon to do our patriotic duty and push back against this intrusion into our lives.
