From the Blogroll: "The Price of Unity Around a Letter"

Loudoun Conservatives on how a candidate's tax policy can change after a call for "unity":

...This is what Shawn Williams’ website said BEFORE the stand-together-for-love-and-happiness convention:

Lower Taxes (Never voting for a tax increase)

“I am deeply concerned with rising property taxes squeezing families in Broad Run. During the last four years, the property tax rate has increased almost 40%! As your Supervisor, I will never vote for a tax increase, including backdoor tax increases through increases in assessments, and I will work to lower your taxes.”

This is what it says now:

Lower Taxes (Defer the tax base off the homeowner)

“I am deeply concerned with rising property taxes and dropping property values in Broad Run. During the last four years, the property tax rate has increased almost 40%! As your Supervisor, I will shift the tax burden off just the homeowners to a more level mix of homeowners and businesses. This will be done through intensified economic developement efforts.”
