A letter in support of Marcey Gregory for Sedgwick County Commissioner printed in the Wichita Eagle on October 26, 2008 requires a correction.
A lie in this letter is this “… Gregory, as mayor of Goddard, has a record of keeping Goddard taxes low.”
The actual record is that in her approximately 1.5 years as mayor of Goddard, the property tax rate — the mill levy — increased by over 16%.
Not even the candidate herself denies that Goddard raised taxes under her leadership. Why a letter signed by Harvey Sorensen and other Wichita businessmen and women would make such an unfounded and untruthful claim is unknown.
