Why I Vote Local: Local Taxes

Republicans like to claim they’re for small government & low taxes.  But after 140 years of GOP control in Delaware County, we pay higher taxes than neighboring Montgomery & Chester Counties – 20% more by income, 30% more by property values. The top ten towns with the highest state & local tax burdens in the Philadelphia area are all in Delco. What do we get in return for those high taxes?  It’s time for new leadership.

One of Indivisible Swarthmore’s key goals is to raise awareness of local DelCo issues to help motivate people to vote in off-year, local elections.  Please share this blurb on your social media feeds (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram).  #DelcoVictory2017 #WhyIVoteLocal
