3. Oregonian Newspaper comes out against Portland School Tax Measure 26-121.
“…The bond represents a considerable burden in a community where taxpayers are still digging out from a recession and struggling with city taxes and utility bills that seem to rise unchecked. The median homeowner with a house valued at $275,000 and assessed at $145,000 would pay about $290 per year for the new bond — and that’s on top of the local-option levy.In this fragile economy, the combined tax hit is simply too high.”
