What a scum he really is. While running the state down he is still lining his pockets with screwing his next door neighbor in East Montpelier out of his house and a fair deal ahead of the state itself. FRAUD

The race is on between his school buddies who can be the biggest PRICK from Putney

Putney people tend to have a lot of serious problems. But their worst problem is SHUMLIN, the arrogant Bumlin.

"The sale price of $58,000 was less than a quarter of the $233,700 for which the property was then appraised. Town listers have since lowered the value to $140,000, due to the condition of Dodge’s home."
so the town listers ( property tax office ) also tried to force the guy off his property and the $18,000 in unpaid taxes was based on an inflated valuation by the tax office. vermont also has a low income property tax discount system for people making less than $47,000 which ends up being 5% of their income so how in the heck did the guy get $18,000 behind in his taxes ?
the government officials involved at the local level also failed to look out for the citizen best interest. Nobody stepped forward to look into the guys plight, just liquidate him and throw him on the street.
Got me what peple learned in college, but it sure wasn't compassion for the less fortunate. Graduates of the University of Plantation Owners seem to be running the show. The ME Generation of I got mine people who want even more.

The towns should be investigated for gaming the low income property tax aid system. They inflate the value of run down properties knowing full well the poor people don't have the means to fight the valuations or any incentive to do so considering it doesn't matter to them when their property tax is based on 5% of income no matter how inflated the valuation is. The towns send the rest of the bill to the state which amounts to defrauding the state if the properties of low income people are over valued.
The more FREE money the towns get from the state by cheating the system the lower the property taxes are for the rest of the people in town who than storm town and school meetings saying spend away, their property taxes ain't bad so they can afford to vote for what they want.
Which towns are getting the most FREE money from the state ?
How many recent property sales are even close to the towns accessed value ?

Shumlin has an answer for that...

so I guess our governor thinks its ok to take advantage of someone who in his words said "Has no one who is willing to engage with him or help him out. Has a criminal record that is despicable, frankly, so lots of people are not going to feel like they want to help for all good reasons." I guess that makes it ok

At least the govenor said he would help the man fnd a decent job using his political connections.

Joe that would be a tremendous scandal if they were doing that. I think the listers are just greedy and figure that the more they can raise everyone else except their friends and themselves the lower the rate and thus the lower their own taxes will be. Can you get me an example of where they are gaming the state by boosting the values of property of the poor just to get more from the state under the latest iteration of Act 60?

www.zillow.com lists recent sales and property taxes but don't blindly assume all the info is correct. A town website will probably list the property tax rates.
state does list the homestead rate(HS for school taxes) and the muni rate for town taxes.
they list current property taxes on places forsale and the taxes compared to the asking prices are all over the place.
Somebody wants $600,000 for their house and the taxes are lower than on somebody asking $450,000 for their house. Are the home owners and real estate agents that far off on the asking prices compared to the towns appraised values ?
Than look up a few recent sale in a town, ok the market has dropped say 10% sinse the last revaluation but the selling prices compared to the taxes paid and towns valuations shouldn't be wild numbers all over the place if the houses where properly appraised in the first place.

want to fix the system, charge by the square foot of finished living space, another rate for secure storage space. So much for the land based on the zoning and basicly flat rate the system based on size seeing as how valuation doesn't work and the cost of doing it is high.
off the grid because of no power lines at street a discount, no plumbing or well another negitive so a discount per square foot on the first 1000 square feet which would cover the typical camp.
rate the land by potential use and flat rate it per acre after it's classified as farm, flood, forest, no chance anyone could or would build on the side of a mountain, no road access without massive exspense.
Throw a GREEN tax on new construction of large homes and hit them with a per square foot tax rate penality on a progressive scale, the bigger they go the more the tax rate is per square foot.

I wish Shumlin sold cars so we all could get a deal from "Honest Pete" up your exhaust pipe auto sales.

Shumlin kept getting personal on Dodge saying that he's done "horrendous despicable things".
Shummy suckered Dodge into signing away his property for $58,000. The land is valued by town listers at $140,000. Initially Shumlin offered Dodge only $32,000, and still Shummy highly overinflates the cost of 'cleaning up the mess' on the property left by Dodge.
Let's put both 'Despicable' Dodge and Shiny Shyster Shumlin on the 'Scales of Justice'...
Dodge had three drunk driving convictions and was busted for drugs and a domestic abuse charge.
He's been poor for years and could have taken advantage of the Vermont property tax prebate and not have had such high property tax bills every year in the first place, but he didn't know that he could have done that and gotten very low tax bills and kept his property.
Shummy got pulled over by a trooper not long before the election that made him Governor (barely) and got a ticket for doing 16 miles over the speed limit. He joked with the trooper that he hoped to soon be driven around by the cop.
Shumlin is adamantly pro-abortion.
He held a pro-abortion rally two days prior to the election, prompting his opponent to host a pro-jobs rally on the same day to draw a contrast between the two candidates' priorities.
Shummy is THE head the Democratic Governors Association, joining other Marxist libscum
extremists against our rights especially the 2nd Amendment, such as Cuomo and Jerry Brown and Clinton etc.
The Democratic Governors Association (DGA), a lobbying organization which represents governors affiliated with the Democratic Party, started an ad campaign calling on Americans to sign a petition demanding Sarah Palin be denounced for “extremist” rhetoric after the former Governor of Alaska expressed concern about the massive bullet purchases by DHS in a Facebook post.
Now a couple dozen members of Congress have been rightfully demanding answers from Mr. Napolitano of the DHS on why they need billions of bullets and have not gotten a proper response.
Liberal pundits are still trying to portray Americans concerned with it's government arming to the teeth and beyond against the citizens as 'crazy' etc. just for asking their public servants "WTF do you think you're doing?!"
So Shummy and his fellow socialist extremist democrat Governors don't want us even questioning why the feds are treating Americans like al-Qaeda and growing into a huge Police State.
the dirt on Shumlin goes on and on...
He went on the Rachel Maddow Show via telephone where he discussed promoting socialist 'health care' reform in Vermont.
speaking of freaks like Mr. Maddow...
On August 17, 2011, Shumlin became the first sitting governor in the United States to preside over a que er 'marriage' ceremony.
He's a G-d supporter of the United Nations and therefore the New World Order plan of the global elite banksters.
Shumlin supports the UN's 'Agenda 21'
From VT Digger - Shumlin signs “complete streets” bill
(more UN/Agenda 21 buzz words like 'sustainability' etc. along with those stupid deadly bicycle lanes like on Putney Rd. in Bratt )

Toward a Sustainable Totalitarian New World Order
Agenda 21 Moving Fast in Vermont
States Rights Trump the Feds/NRC
"Governor Shumlin is either a global warming hoax sucker, or a globalist puppet intent on implementing UN Agenda 21 slavery through oppressive energy regulations that include cap-and-trade taxes. The only way that renewables can become cost effective is to raise the price of the competition through carbon taxes (the objective of this program is to eliminate the competition).
The state of Vermont has played into UN Agenda 21 tyranny by signing on to an unconstitutional treaty between states, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, that implemented a mandatory cap-and-trade tax scheme in 2008."
Vermonters who value independence and liberty ought to kick ICLEI out of the Green Mountain State!
(Burlington, S. Burlington and Brattleboro have signed onto becoming UN Agenda 21 ICLEI cities)
