I think it is time that the unqualified that has managed to lie their way into a position by promising assistant that only they benefits need to prove themselves. I do not feel that raising property taxes will fix the problem of the budget deficit created by miscalculation of the tax rate. Why should the residents of New Hanover County and the City of Wilmington be penalized for their mistake? If the average employee made such a colossal mistake they would be dismissed without hesitation. This problem was created because no one felt that the problem was significant enough to take immediate action or to be more attentive to the situation this is not reason enough to penalize the residents. A mistake of this magnitude is only created due to someone lack of attention and believing that a simple fix is raising taxes. This will not deter the problems from happening again, and again. It will only set a president in the City govenment that if someone falls short of their job performance raise taxes, it is a quick fix to every situation. Once the residents permit them to go forward it establishes a pattern for the future generation. The City government should be forced to find other ways of addressing the problem and accept the fact that they were the reason of the deficit and curtail their spending habits. The economy is currently dealing with high gas prices, low job rate, and home foreclosure just to mention a few why would you add to the burden.
