Get Ready: Here Comes Leopold

The residents of Anne Arundel County might as well get ready, because tax hiker-in-chief John Leopold is on the scene:

Officials say they hope to avoid increasing local taxes to make up for lost funding.

“I made a commitment in my campaign not to increase property or income taxes,” said Anne Arundel Executive John R. Leopold, a Republican.

But that doesn’t mean he won’t try to raise fees. “I’m going to try to secure revenues outside of property and income taxes,” and by cutting expenses, he said.

Once again noting that Leopold has never made a commitment he could keep, be prepared for a lot of Leopold’s pet-tax projects to be repackaged as fees very soon…
