SMITH URGES GIAMBRA TO HIKE PROPERTY TAX, TOO

Erie County Legislator Demone A. Smith urged at a press conference on Saturday that County Executive Joel A. Giambra's proposed penny increase in sales tax be combined with an increase in property tax.

He argued a sales tax is regressive for poorer constituents, and should not be used to subsidize what he said amounts to a property tax decrease for wealthier constituents.
