Resident says it’s not fair to keep taxing property owners

Why is it every time Sumner County needs money their first thought is to raise property taxes? There are thousands of residents in this county that don't own property and don't have to foot the bill to live here.

It's wrong to expect one group of residents to continue to pay extra for all. There has to be a better solution that makes it fair for the majority; not just property owners. Maybe we need new people in office who can think of new ideas instead of falling back on the property owners.

I know I'm not the only one who feels this way. I'm 66 and I still work every day and when I retire I would like to think I didn't have to worry about my taxes going up and up every time money is needed.
