Dear Friend,

We have been quietly working during the past few weeks to educate community leaders on what I believe was an unintended consequence of the rushed Dock Tax process – the “taking” of our property right to the dock. I have explained this in a commentary in the on-line Daily Pilot (below). I will always maintain that the Dock Tax was big government money grab reaching into our pocket for no good reason. However, the Dock Tax pales in comparison to the city’s seizure of our property right, and therefore the value your dock. Docks can add $1 million in value to the upland home. It’s my goal to work with the City to restore our value and bring about a fair conclusion to the issue.
