Oneida County Legislator Calls for Sales Tax to be Lowered Now

Gino Geruntino, WIBX

The County which holds claim to the states highest sales tax needs to lower the rate immediately.  That’s according to Oneida County Legislator (D-NH) David Gordon.

Appearing on First News with Keeler in the Morning on Wednesday, Gordon said smaller government needs to be a priority and the money needs to be put back into the hands of the people.

“I wouldn’t entertain the idea of cutting the sales tax if I didn’t think it was feasible,” said Gordon. “If we make sound financial decisions in the County Office Building, we can assure that there are no property tax increases,” he added.

Opponents of the decrease, including County Executive Anthony Picente claim that this is the wrong time to lower the sales tax because issues like the Oneida Nation deal with New York State is currently being tied up in court.  [Read and listen Tony Picente story and AUDIO]
