Selma has 70% renters for its population. That means that a lot of the tax burden is on people who don’t live here or do live here and own multiple properties. The rent price that is paid is partially determined by the property taxes that a property owner pays. When it comes to spending and what the spending is on, you need to have elected officials who will be accountable, transparent, honest, and good stewards of your tax dollars.
Property taxes affect everyone

I am a happily married guy living in Selma, North Carolina with my wife and three boys. I have a background in radio broadcasting, fire protection, and some technical/computer experience. I currently am employed as a Senior Engineering Specialist at one of the world's largest media and entertainment companies (company policy is that I should not mention the name). I have been a newspaper columnist, blogger, podcaster, and a TV and radio talk show host. I still occasionally get to do voice-overs for radio and television as well as video productions. I have been known to run for public office, run P.A. systems at churches, and volunteer with some scouting organizations. I have a love for God, my family, and my country, and I admit that I fall short on patience when people mess with any of those three. I have had a lifelong love/hate relationship with both politics and religion, and don't shy from having opinions on either. My hobbies include shooting, theology, and using, fixing, and enjoying fountain pens. View more posts
