Chris Zimmerman wants a new gas tax to fund Metro projects. Big shocker here. It’s not like Metro gets $600 million a year from local taxpayers to fund almost half of their budget and is raising fare prices.

In addition to this gas tax, more taxes and fees were approved this year, including:

– An increased real-estate tax rate by 8.3 cents to a total of 95.8 cents per $100 of a home’s assessed value.

– Higher fees for water, sewer service, trash pickup, car-tax decal, as well as parking tickets.

Are we going to let Chris Zimmerman go unchecked?
