LETTER TO THE EDITOR — Now is not time for raising property taxes

It doesn’t matter what reason is given for property tax increases. This is not the time for Jefferson County to show their greed.

I’m furious along with most homeowners. It appears we’re heading for the worst economic downturn in years, and the county is increasing taxes?

It’s definitely time for new people who decided on this.

Maybe they can afford this, which simply means they are overpaid.

It’s time for a new appraiser. In fact our whole appraisal district should be replaced.

— Paul Ronquille, Port Arthur
