Broward County Mayor Sues over State Property Tax Proposal listen07/10/07 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:
Yesterday a South Florida Mayor challenged the property tax overhaul passed by the Legislature, asking the state Supreme Court to pull the Constitutional Amendment off next Januaryâ€™s ballot.
Eric Hersh is the Mayor of Weston, in Broward county. He becomes the first official from a municipal government in Florida to contest the property tax reform package approved by the legislature last month. And because of that, heâ€™s being targeted â€“ in some cases, for a possible re-call for taking what some say is an unpopular stance.
WMNF spoke with Mayor Hersh this morning . We began by asking him what does he find unconstitutional in what the legislature has put up for a vote next year? (roll tape#1 o.q.â€that have nothing to do with usâ€)
Thatâ€™s Eric Hersh, the Democratic Mayor of Weston, a suburb of Fort Lauderdale.
