My name is
Lamar Lowery and I am announcing my intention to run for Commissioner of
District I. I previously served as
District I Commissioner for eight years. I stand proudly on my record of having
never voted for a property tax increase. I am one of the five commissioners who
voted for the senior tax exemption to be put on the ballot to let the citizens
decide. I was sad to see the recent class warfare over the senior exemption but
the truth is, since 2003 the state has cut $12 million dollars of Dade County’s
school funding which is exactly the amount the school system says they are
short. So if we’re gonna have a war let’s be sure we have the right enemy.
I was one of
the five commissioners who voted to defend a citizen’s lawsuit to stop HB818
and HB819, which we won. These bills allowed homeowners to freeze their home
values at their current value. These bills have stopped backdoor tax increases
that happened on a regular basis in Dade County.
election will be May 20, all elections are now county wide so you don’t have to
live in District 1 to be able to vote for me as the District 1 Commissioner. I
will stay conservative and keep you informed.
I can be
reached at (423) 667-0038.
and vote would be greatly appreciated.
