Yes, Councilwoman Ladd voted for a 19% tax increase, rather than the 33% one the mayor had proposed. The data is in the minutes of the Council meetings which are on the City website and are public records. Her support of the fire & police departments are evident in the new firehall going in the north Hixson area and her support of the Career Ladder system, which all the Council members with the exception on Councilman Gilbert (who abstained) voted for as well. Every taxpayer gets benefits in the form of streets, garbage & recycling pickup and sewer systems. Which of these services would you prefer to do without instead of paying taxes?
