COLUMBUS – Americans for Prosperity – Ohio State Director Eli Miller provided the following comment on tonight’s defeat of the Issue 6 zoo levy. AFP-OH has been leading the grassroots fight to stop the permanent property tax hike, knocking on thousands of doors and completing thousands of phone calls, to explain that Franklin county residents already pay one of the highest property taxes in the nation.
“Making a tax increase permanent removes the accountability to the taxpayers. We are pleased that Franklin County residents saw the negative impact Issue 6 would have on them and their families and prudently rejected this permanent tax increase,” said Eli Miller, Americans for Prosperity Ohio State Director. “This is a victory for Franklin County taxpayers allowing them to keep more of their money.”
