Pres Release - Tax Petition Drive Results
Wednesday, July 23, 2003 12:00:00 AM - Monroe Ohio

Contact Person -- Thomas Kidd

Results of the income tax petition drive and the official committee name
will be released at a group meeting to be held today at 8:00 p.m. in the
Community Room of the Monroe Fire Department's administration building,
located at 6262 Hamilton--Middletown Road, State Route 4. The committee,
made up of various residents of Monroe, have been attempting to obtain
enough signatures to place on the November ballot an issue to remove the
1/2% income tax on earnings of residents who work outside the city and are
already paying taxes to those cities. If successful, it would not only
reinstate the credit removed by the Monroe council last December, but also
prevent any similar attempts to reinstate this tax without citywide voter
approval. The committee's spokesman, Thomas Kidd, stated, "the tax repeal
committee's name will reflect the goal of the group to challenge the Monroe
city officials in establishing a financially responsible budget. The budget
has gotten out of hand and they need to be held fully accountable to the
Monroe taxpayers." Interested residents of Monroe are invited to attend to
hear comments by others present, who have been attending city council and
the citizen budget meetings. Anyone desiring to sign the petitions will be
given an opportunity to do so, and to ask pertinent questions. If there are
enough valid names on the petitions, the committee will indicate when they
will be filed and when the actual campaign effort will begin.
