Robin Ficker of Robin Realty will hold a press conference in front of the Clark House, 23346 Frederick Road in Clqarksburg, Md. on Monday, Oct. 8, 2007 at noon to discuss the completion of a petition drive to collect 13,000 signatures of Montgomery County voters. The petition will be turned into the County Executive and will place a charter amendment on the Montgomery County ballot in November, 2008, to limit property tax increases.

""With Marylanders facing huge unjustified tax increases, it is time for the pendulum to start swinging the other way," Ficker said. "None of these proposed tax increases was mentioned in the campaign less than a year ago and now there are efforts to push them through in a special session as a fait accompli with perfunctory public hearings. Our elected officials, who lack even a remote sense of fiscal responsibility, need to realize that enough people to fill Cole Field House want a property tax limit on the ballot. I have chosen the Clark House as the scene of this announcement because county officials are threatening a $1,500 annual 30 year property tax surcharge for Clarksburg residents who had no notice of such surcharge when they purchased. These property taxes are limiting home values in Cklarksburg and putting a big damper on sales," Ficker said.
