Mayoral hopefuls clash on taxes in Geneva
GENEVA – Mayor Kevin Burns and mayoral hopeful Bob McQuillan came out swinging Wednesday at a candidate forum focused on fiscal responsibility, co-sponsored by Geneva TaxFACTS.
With more than 100 residents gathered at Williamsburg Elementary School, Burns, who is seeking his fourth term, recounted the fiscal health of the city.
“I’m going to begin by sharing some facts,” Burns said. “Sales tax revenue was up 5 percent over [a] comparable time last year. Under my administration, there was 1.12 million new square feet of industrial and commercial space developed. In 2011 and 2012, Geneva’s downtown produced $100 million in sales. Geneva Commons produced $100 million in sales.”
