TLS EXCLUSIVE: Video Message From Senator And Mayor Bob Singer

EXCLUSIVE VIDEO MESSAGE: The Lakewood Scoop met with Mayor Bob Singer this morning to talk about the recent vote on the budget. In this eight minute video, the Mayor explains to the Lakewood community the reasoning behind the tax increases and why cutting services isn't always the answer and at times-unreasonable. We would like to thank the Mayor for taking time from his busy schedule to address the community. We would also like to thank Pessy and Michelle for helping arrange the meeting.

Bottom line is if you want to pay more taxes then keep the current politicians in power.

Clinton won the election in 92 by saying to voters its the economy stupid same can be said to steve langert and bob singer its the taxes that people care about.
i believe bob and steve will not be voted in again as taxes was the main reason people voted for them and they ran on lowring taxes and now they come up with excuses.

Lakewood has 628 Tax Exempt organizations which are worth $617,610,583. Maybe if there were some centralized schools in the town instead of the enormous amount we have the homeowners whould not have to make up so much of the burden. I can understand picking up trash for schools for free in most towns that don't abuse the luxury however Lakewood is the exception. These schools are nothing more than a money making ploy. Look at the house's of the school owners. There is also the matter of almost 11 million dollars in back taxs in this town, they should spend some time collecting that. For the info on the tax exempt organizations look here http://www.taxexemptworld.com/search.asp?type=oz&criteria=08701info
Stop blaming the current polititions for the problem. If everyone in this town paid their fair share this town would be in excellent shape.
