History of the property tax crisis

The Indianapolis Star organized and published links to the headline stories surrounding the property tax crisis. Included in the stories is the July 14th article that talks about the different camps of tax protestors.

Sean Shepard, candidate for 7th district congressman, helped to lead the first July 4th protest at the governor's mansion. He attended every single rally last summer. He not only attended, but he helped plan, organize, and lead the rallies alongside Andy Horning and Melyssa Donaghy.

In contrast neither Andre Carson or Jon Elrod ever attended even one rally or showed public concern regarding the #1 issue facing all Hoosier homeowners and the top news story of the year.

While a Congressperson has no say over local propety tax matters, our house representative Jon Elrod does. It would have been nice to see Elrod at our rallies lending moral support. If he didn't represent us last year by showing up when we took to the streets, what makes you think he will represent us any better in Washington?

Andre Carson was never there with us and for us either. In fact he's the least qualified for Congress. Sorry but being Julia's grandson is not a resume credential.
