Mr. Mangano says he held the line on property taxes. Thats actually not true. He simply shifted them from property to school taxes. The sewer tax was never a cost to schools. Now they are. Some schools don't even have sewers but they still must pay which can only be made back by taxes. Also, Nassau always used to make good on tax certiorari appeals. Now he has made school districts responsible for paying back their portion. So it now may not appear as a property tax, it comes across as a school tax. All smoke and mirrors. You should let people know that.
