After careful consideration of both Dennis Frazier and Tom Gordon, it has come down to one thing for me and my family. That one thing is higher taxes. With the city of Westminster raising water and sewer rates and with both city and county not adjusting the constant yield causing us to pay more based on assessments, higher taxes are another increase my family doesn't need. Commissioner Frazier previously tried to remove Carroll County from the super majority required to raise taxes. There is only one reason to take away the super majority and that is to have an easier ability to raise taxes. I believe Tom Gordon when he said he will fight against tax increases. For that reason and that reason alone, my family and I are voting for Tom Gordon.
