Post-election, top of mayor's priorities is a tax increase

November 14, 2011

Wow, that didn't take long.

The ink just dried on the election ballots and already Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is out with tax increases ("Mayor to seek bottle tax increase," Nov. 11).

You have been well trained by your predecessors, Mayor Rawlings-Blake. Can't wait to see what is next. A property tax increase instead of decrease perhaps?

The sound you hear are more residents and businesses leaving the city.

George Koolhof, Baltimore
