Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan slams the pro-tax members of the assemblyTax cap protection worthy of vote By Mayor Dan Sullivan
Last week, a majority on the Anchorage Assembly voted not to allow voters to weigh in on how the Municipality of Anchorage calculates the tax cap. South Anchorage member Chris Birch put forth a proposal called the Taxpayer Protection Act (that I supported) that would ask local voters to decide in April whether to enshrine tax cap protections in the city charter, which is like the city's constitution. Surprisingly, six of the 11 members decided that the matter was not important enough to send to voters and killed the effort.
