Quotes

...Somehow we need to allow for some ambiguity as we get to grips with Joy's Law, the principle that "no matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else”."
"My office receives calls regularly from constituents who believe their property assessments are too high," said Rep. Sandack. "I would encourage any resident who is concerned with their tax bill to attend one of these informational sessions so they can learn how assessments are determined and how they may appeal those assessments if they believe they are too high."

Perhaps now, a more balanced debate will take place, and hopefully it won't be too late."
