“Clearly, high property taxes are too much for residents. Naturally, the municipality needs to spend money for improvements, and services for seniors and youth. As a successful business man, I advanced numerous considerations for wiser spending and better value for council expenditures. The time for change is now.” – Peter Rodrigues
The biggest issue facing Pickering is that property taxes are simply too high! As a Regional Councillor, I continually voted against raising property taxes. I moved several motions each year to further reduce the budget expenditures, so that you would have more money in your pocket for your family’s needs. Your property taxes should not keep increasing by more than your income, or more than the cost of living index.
