After winning the Democratic Primary for Governor of Nebraska on Tuesday, candidate Bob Krist and his running mate, Lynne Walz took to the air on a fly around tour of the state to talk about Property Tax Reform.
Krist, a former state senator from Omaha, says property tax relief and education are the two main issues he wants to reform to help Nebraska residents:
OC……..property taxes down. :23
Walz, the Democratic Lt. Governor candidate who also served in the state senate, says education funding has not been as important of a priority for the state in recent years;
OC……our tax system. :20
Krist says he doesn’t know of a single soul who says their property taxes have gone down:
OC…….out of the state. :10
Krist used Morrill County as an example, stating they have experienced a 147 percent increase in property taxes during the past ten years, as compared to only a 20 percent increase in household income.
