But this year, Don't just pay your taxes, do something about them.
This election is an excellent opportunity to let both legislators and our next governor know that we expect them to fix our system. this election has been dominated by shrill invective, non-factual name calling and political innuendo. We are operating in an almost completely fact free zone. Well MSRPO says no more.
On this tax day, take action:
* Join the Minnesota Seasonal Recreational Property Owners Coalition if you have not already. Dues are voluntary - stand up for the values we all share - a family place on the lake or in the woods. MSRPO is your voice when it comes to property tax relief, stopping the spread of aquatic invasive species, and updating Minnesota's shore line minimum standards.
* Learn how to Solve Minnesota's Budget Woes in Nonpartisan Fashion.
