In layman's terms: That's a 24% tax increase!!!
Meanin that a $150,000 home has a tax rate of $1,560 would now be $1,920 or for a $300,000 home it goes from $3,120 to $3,840!

Now, to be fair, some proprties' assessments have gone down. But, not for the 1% folks who get to pay their "fair share" over those that see no real increase.

But, but, but... The City Administrators and the Department Heads MUST have a raise on their six figure salaries. It's hard pushing paper around a desk. Also the pawn shops need new business as working class people will have to go to them to raise the money for the City "heads" salary increase.

I think Food Stamps, WIC Section 8, "Crazy Checks", and TANF grants should be taxed. These are income and the recipients should pay their fair share.

EVERY school in Hampton obtains $9,500/student. I suggest your "poorer schools" students take the education afforded them and better themselves rather than being victims all the stinking time.
Learn to read, write and do simple math so that you can leave the "poor", Air Jordan lifestyles that they suffer from.
