...and so is Sarah Friede! We all live here on the coast and all know very well what our duties are as far as reporting property for tax reasons! Boats are a staple here and are taxed like everything else we own. As a town councilman, if Bob Lewis doesn't "realize boats are included" in taxation, it doesn't sound as though he is qualified to govern our towns taxation, much less any other town-critical issues. I don't care if it's a $200 leaky jon boat or a half million dollar sportfisherman, nobody goes 5 years without paying taxes on it. It's a shame that Lewis doesn't have the common decency to just pay the bill, much less claim "supreme ignorance" by stating, "...derrr...I juss din't know...". HorseHooie!!!
Sorry Sarah, you missed the mark on this one! It's not Rothrock that will tarnish his reputation, it's green council members like yourself attempting to bash him for doing the right thing. There aren't gray areas in vessel taxation and there aren't gray areas for public officials that avoid paying their due! Take your sides, pick your battles, but you lose all the way around on this one. Rothrock already has an established reputation, you're still trying to build one. It's not going very well so far.
