A Yes vote on November 5th grows jobs
There has been much discussion about the local option sales tax for property tax relief that voters in Dorchester County will see on the ballot November 5th. I’m voting YES because it’s time that Dorchester County takes proactive steps to attract business and jobs instead of continually putting our heads in the sand and staying behind. Simply put, lower property taxes mean more jobs for our residents.
Take a look as you drive down Main Street – business after business setting up shop in Berkeley County…yet on the Dorchester side still nothing. When development abutted the county line, everything quickly started moving to the other side of exit 199 in Berkeley County. The reason: business owners seek out the lowest cost to do business and property taxes in Berkeley County are drastically lower.
Our property taxes are too high for business owners. Voting YES to lower property taxes starts to utilize the tools in the toolbox that our County Council has at their disposal. Yes, property tax reform needs to be a state issue, but we can’t just throw our hands in the air and wait for state government to solve our problems locally. We must step up and make some positive changes at the county level to attract jobs to our community. It starts by voting YES to pay less on November 5th.
