WHAT WILL THE LEGISLATURE DO ABOUT SKYROCKETING PROPERTY TAXES?
This will be the topic of the first legislative forum sponsored by the Coalition of East Tarrant County Chambers on August 3rd at the Arlington Chamber. A panel of four experts moderated by Ron Wright, former Tax Assessor/Collector for Tarrant County will tackle the topic. Representing the Texas Public Policy Foundation will be Dr. Vance Ginn, Chief Economist. The perspective of school districts will be addressed by Dr. Aaron Reich, President of the Arlington Independent School District Board of Trustees. County Judge Glen Whitley will address the topic from the perspective of cities and counties. State Representative Matt Krause will explain the dilemma faced by the Legislature.
This is a unique opportunity to learn about many sides of the property tax issue from people who actually live the issue every day.
The forum will be open to members of the Chambers in the Coalition: Arlington, Mansfield, Grapevine, HEB and Northeast. .
