OSWEGO ELECTION FORUM: Conservative Republican Wants Lower Taxes, Spending

Feb 16, 2017 01:21PM ● Published by Steven Jack

My name is Brian Thomas, and I am running for Oswego Village Trustee on the Republican ballot.  

Let me first say, that if I’m elected, there will be nobody on the Village Board that will be a bigger supporter of our Police, Firefighters, Teachers, Emergency Responders, and of course our Military Veterans than myself.  

Also, there will be no bigger supporter of Small/Big business than myself, but I Will Not do it on the back(s) of the resident(s) via increased taxes.  I believe most Business would rather have a roll back in regulation and less “red tape” than tax breaks that come at the expense of the residents.  

I am not a politician, rather a concerned resident that is upset with the direction the current board is taking us-with high taxes and big government.  I am a Conservative Republican that is for lower taxes and limited government.  

I am running because I believe our taxes are already too high with no end in sight.  The Village Board just approved $44 Million Dollars for the Downtown TIF District, as well as paid $1.5 Million Dollars for a Parking Lot-also known as the old Alexander Lumber property-which will come with another tax increase.  

Ladies and Gentlemen, we can do better and I ask for your support and vote on April 4th 2017. 

If you have any questions, would like to Volunteer or Donate, or help in any capacity, please contact me.
