Scranton’s property taxes are outrageously high. The people of Scranton have to make a decision to either improve their homes or pay property taxes. They end up paying property taxes with the result being that their homes begin deteriorate. This brings the values of their homes down trapping them into a spiral of loss value and further deterioration. When I am Mayor, I will cut property taxes. I will make every conceivable effort to run Scranton at no unnecessary additional cost to the Scranton people.
