Over the last several years Sherburne County government spending has gotten out of control. We need to get a board in place that understands the burden that continually raising taxes, year after year, places on our citizens. We have got to break this idea that just because your property value increases, that somehow means government is entitled to more of your money.
Since 2016 the current board has:
- Increased taxes by nearly 30%, 4x the population growth
- Increased county staffing 50% faster than the population growth
- Has increased their own pay by 43%
Bring fiscal responsibility back to Sherburne County
The spending growth in Sherburne County is unsustainable. We need a board that understands budget discipline, and has the ability to say 'no'. We are taxing our most vulnerable citizens out of their homes.
