Swan Reveals Taxpayer Protection Plan
Mayoral candidate Joe Swan is promising nothing higher than a 1% tax increase each year, if elected.
Swan notes he also plans to freeze the salaries of everyone at London’s City Hall, including the mayor, city managers and councillors.
“We need to make London an affordable place to live so we can remain competitive with other regional municipalities,” says Swan. “As mayor, I will keep tax increases to a maximum of one percent each year. If the Police Services Board can do it, City Hall can too.”
Swan says his Taxpayer Protection Plan is realistic and affordable for Londoners. He believes all services can be maintained with a 1% or lower tax increase.
