Our economy is the most important issue facing Chase in my opinion.
While we are a ‘bedroom’ community in some people’s eyes, we need to encourage growth and support at the local level to ensure long-term sustainability. And to ensure that the residential taxpayers are not paying the majority of the taxes. With businesses, industry and other private enterprise comes more tax revenue. Reducing the burden on our taxpayers. The people of Chase want good services, but this comes with costs – we need to diversify our tax base with more privately funded enterprise.
