Dan Dromarsky was the young man in the room as the 32-year-old laid out plans for a property tax freeze at Rosedale Assisted Living seniors residence yesterday.
Dromarsky said, if elected, he would allow citizens to freeze their property taxes at a fixed rate for three years.
“I think it’s important to offer this option to Edmontonians,” said the mayoral candidate.
“Whether they choose to take advantage of it or not is up to them.”
He said his goal isn’t to increase taxes at all.
“My goal is to keep it stable and to spend within our means,” he said. “If they lock in on their taxes and taxes go down, we’ll refund that money to them.”
Dromarsky chose the seniors home across the street from Stephen Mandel’s campaign office on 111 Street and 101 Avenue because, he said, many seniors have to watch their wallets.
“Many seniors live on a fixed income,” he said.
“If they have the ability to prepay property taxes, they wouldn’t have to worry about their cost of living for future years.”
