Just as sure as fall brings college football, fall color in the high country, and the end of oppressive heat in the Valley, so comes the annual campaign by the Kyrene and Tempe Union school districts to raise property taxes to cover their operating budgets. I know, I know, the proponents argue that there is no increase in taxes but if any property owner will review their annual tax statement from Maricopa County, I don’t believe that is quite the case.

If you don’t see this before the 25th all the better, because I usually can’t muster the energy to find a box of Christmas cards, print address labels, write a letter that doesn’t sound bragging, smarmy, or maudlin, and then find stamps before New Year’s anyway.
