CALLING ALLEN COUNTY TOWNSHIP BOARD AND TRUSTEES – TAXPAYERS NEED YOU!!! IT’S REFERENDUM TIME: The township trustees and board members are in a really special place. Unlike regular citizens who must go through a long, expensive, multi-phasic process to get a referendum on the ballot (say something opposing specific “economic development” ideas, like: Downtown Arena, GE Campus; Riverfront Development Phase I; Riverfront Development Phase II, III, IV, V, etc.; Quimby Village campus; International Harvester campus; McMillen Park Housing project; Summit Industrial Park/Sweetwater Sound annexation project; Spy Run Corridor project; Lima Road Corridor project; Goshen Road Corridor project; Jefferson Blvd. Corridor project; Ellison/Old Mill Road project; Memorial Park Commercialization project; and others), the County Township, as an Indiana political subdivision, may circumvent this process with a resolution to place a referendum on the ballot instead of growing through the petition and remonstrance process. (See I.C. 6-1.1-12-3.8)
Folks – All of these tax hikes and hikes in service fees are NOT about school zone sidewalks. They are about continuing fake economic development that fails to create jobs but costs taxpayers dearly. Fake economic development is the continued creation and sustaining of taxpayer subsidized projects that are unable to and incapable of sustaining themselves. It’s about a problem that goes all the way back to the Ivan Lebamoff administration---before the Harvester Strike and before Win Moses was elected Mayor---when Lebamoff got himself elected Mayor and Win Moses elected to City Council. Lebamoff and Moses tagged team I&M – Moses championed lower utility rates such that it hindered I&M’s growth while Lebamoff entered into an agreement with I&M to lease to the company city-owned equipment to help I&M experience the very growth Moses’ City Council had stunted.
This pattern happens over and over and over again in our fair community. First, a need is created (i.e. Moses hindered I&M’s traditional growth strategy by making profits razor thin so that I&M would look for alternative growth models/growth opportunities). Second, a solution to the need is provided (i.e. Lebamoff offering city-owned equipment for I&M’s use at juuuust the right time for juuuust the right price.) Once I&M accepted that deal in the late 70’s, the whose who of Fort Wayne’s political ruling class and their financial supporters (i.e. bankers, insurance companies, real estate developers, metal recyclers, etc) have been foaming out the mouth as real estate has been quietly purchased in such a way that an entire taxpayer-dependent industry was created.
TAX INCREASES ARE ABOUT MAINTAINING A STATUS QUO THAT CANNOT BE SUSTAINED ANY OTHER WAY --- A STATUS QUO THAT IS ABUSIVE
It’s about maintaining a status quo by the City (through it’s various departments: Redevelopment Commission, Parks Department, Board of Public Works/City Utilities, Fleet Management/Transportation, Controller, Law Department and more). A status quo that requires the behind-the-scenes assistance of the County (i.e. the County Commissioners, County Auditor, County Assessor, County Treasurer as well as the County Election Board, County Clerk of Courts, Circuit Court Judge, and more).
A status quo that created a system of abuses imposed upon people of limited means and resourses, the working, aging and/or disabled poor --- imposing targeted property right restrictions followed by enforcement (or “compliance” as its now called---makes it sound more pleasant and palatable) by way of Neighborhood Code Enforcement violations; those in potential economic zones could never overcome the restrictions---as soon as one “housing code problem” was solved another would emerge. And another. And another. Soon the property owner would give up. Or would get behind in taxes. Or their home would be condemned through creative means like the removal of natural gas pipes for heat or the causing of plumbing problems through an assortment of means. And that’s if they couldn’t gain access inside a home by way of a “free inspection” service --- like lead or carbon monoxide or mold --- and create…uh, erh…”identify” a problem to be solved. But could never actually be solved as one problem would lead to another problem and to another problem until the financial losses were too great for the homeowner to overcome. Whatever it took to get rid of the homeowner and devalue the property---all in an effort to gain ownership of the property.
THE LANGUAGE OF THE ABUSE – TURNING NEGATIVE REALITIES INTO FALSE PERCEPTIONS THAT ARE POSITIVE AND “PRETTY”
Some call it gentrification. Which is a pretty sounding word for the creation of an entire class of “undesireables” – like homeless people or people with mental health problems. You know—those silly people who lost their homes and ended up in a state of shock, awe, and depression because they were…(wait for it)…home less. Usually people who didn’t try to turn their lives around through criminal activities, like drug dealing and forced prostitution (now known as human trafficking because that sounds better than raping women for profit). And those who did try to turn their lives around through legitimate means often found failure and entrapment by a system designed to keep them down and out. (Without these people, you would have no need for the other local industry---the non-profit industry designed to help people who are down and out. Non-profits like United Way, Salvation Army, Rescue Mission, Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne, the Foellinger-Freimann Foundation and a great deal many more.)
But never mind these problems folks. Be positive. Don’t ask questions. Afterall, its summertime. It’s festival time. Why focus on the problems of others? That’s just so negative. You don’t want to be negative, right? Why be negative when you can choose to be positive? Don’t worry. BE HAPPY! Let’s start by not worry about your family’s needs. This is best accomplished by ignoring your own family needs. That’s right folks. Cause the next tax hike is oooooooooonly going to cost you $60 a year. If you’re household makes $40,000 a year. Oops?! That’s not right. It’s $60 a year per $40,000 a year of wages per person.
$40,000 A YEAR REALITIES – IF YOU ARE SO LUCKY TO MAKE $40,000 A YEAR
But you don’t make $40,000 a year? Then quit being a slacker! Oh, wait, you make $40,000 a year by working 3 jobs and trying your best to support a family? Good job. That’s the spirit! Keep up the steady employment and don’t be afraid of working yourselves to death. Our local death industry (i.e. hospitals when Obamacare is no longer in existence, life insurance agencies, funeral homes, cemetaries, etc) is dependent on your support. What? You used that $60 a year to attend BBQ Ribfest? What were you thinking? You can attend a festival without eating or drinking you idiot! (**sarcastically stated**)
What – you make $40,000 a year but your children are dependent upon FWCS’ federal lunch program during the school year and the federal lunch program in the parks when school isn’t in session? (And just how did the Fort Wayne Parks department get into the feed the children federal and state lunch program racket?) That’s ok. You are still making $40,000 a year – that’s all that’s really important. Yes, we here at the Bank of Fort Wayne can tax that. No, you don’t get any tax exemptions for being on federal assistance or state assistance. You have to be a crony capitalistic business that promises to but completely fails to create jobs to get tax abatements. You silly, silly people.
What—you’re on a $40,000 a year fixed income that doesn’t allow for cost of living increases and you’re a senior citizen dependent on Medicare, Medicaid, and food stamps? That’s ok. Again, you are still making $40,000 a year and that’s what’s important. Besides, it’s not like you are going to live forever. Hello, you have a death industry to support. Don’t be such a slacker!
What—you’re making $40,000 a year and are barely making ends meet now after the rising cost of food, utilities, gas tax, wheel tax (state), wheel tax (county), wheel tax (city), and newly created service fees like the trash collection fee, trash processing fee, recyclables collection fee, and recyclables processing fee, and a whole host of other taxes, service fees, and cost that are increasing beyond your control? Don’t worry. If you can’t make ends meet, that is what you’re township trustee is for. They’ll help you get on food stamps, housing subsidies, and whatever else it takes to enable you to pony up an additional $60 here, $40 there, $50 waaay over there, etc.
The sad and really ridiculous thing here is that as sarcastic as I’ve been in illustrating the above examples, I’m not really far off the mark. And that’s what’s really scary.
The current round of projects isn’t sustainable, but ---and unbelievably --- lots of additional projects have already been planned. For about 3 decades out. More projects than could have ever been financed by the Legacy Light lease monies. Which brought us the Regional Cities monies. And folks, any monies that come to Fort Wayne or Allen County from the State of Indiana or the federal government are coming from YOUR TAXES! We’ve run out of tax monies that have been classified as Regional Cities monies. We are running out of taxpayer monies called “user fees” that make up the Legacy Fund.
INSTEAD OF RAISING TAXES, WHY NOT SLOW DOWN OR DECREASE THE SPENDING?
But…wait….if we are running out of monies, then why don’t we simply slow down “economic development” projects? That’s a good question. The reality is that we could and we should. But politics won’t allow that to happen.
First, politicians would have to admit their failures, shortcoming, mismanagement and misappropriations as well as their flat out lies and deception. Some of these guys are living in such a state of denial that what they are doing is wrong or hurting our community that you could probably nail them to a cross and torture them and they’d still not confess. (In part, I pity them. There will come a day when they find themselves knocking at death’s door—a day when they are forced to look back over their lives---and they aren’t going to like what the reality is. At a time when they could have been champions of our community, they chose to be self-indulgent chumps. At a time when they could have been courageous and simply come clean, they will have sullied their hands and their souls with vicious lies and flat out deceptions designed to benefit a few while harming the many.)
But it isn’t just the lack of admitting the obvious. And folks, sadly, it really isn’t.
THAT 70’s ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY
The problem is that the next generation of hand-picked “political leaders” currently being groomed by the old guard lack creativity, courage, conviction and a cohesive, clear vision to pull it all together. And because of that, they choose to recycle a failing strategy that has been decades in the making. The demolish-and-build strategy that is based entirely on real estate development. A 1970’s strategy that was perfected in the 90’s originally took the property of poor people and converted that property into commercial brick-and-mortar opportunities. A lackluster, overused recycled strategy that is now taking the property of the middle class (residents of neighborhoods adjacent to Jefferson Blvd in SW Fort Wayne) and converting that into commercially zoned property for _____?? (E-commerce is growing and brick-and-mortar commerce is falling further and further behind. )
An old, outdated, once-upon-a-time, tried-and-true strategy that is seemingly trying to reinvent itself by making Downtown Fort Wayne into some sort of a tourist attraction doomed for failure. Why? Because successful tourist attractions are ones that offer something unique. Something different. Something not found elsewhere. Riverfront development in Fort Wayne is as unique as riverfront development in South Bend, Indianapolis, Evansville, etc. It’s overused. It’s not going to attract anyone. And the powers to be know this. Which is why they have tried to change the narrative. Current political leadership would have us all believing that all this development is no longer designed to attract tourist (which it can’t) but is about creating a “quality of place.” Of course, they never quite define what a “quality of place” is? Just what the heck is “quality of place”?
By the neon lights and flashing LED signs found all over the Fort Wayne, one would think the definition of “quality of place” is anything that mimics Las Vegas, Chicago, New York, or Miami. Exit the 70s disco dancer with its glittering mirrored disco ball and enter the 80’s go-go dancer surrounded by pulsating neon lights. Just without the crime. But wait – our crime is higher per capita than some of these places. Ooops?! Uhm…environmental. Yeah, environmental. That’s it. Let’s go green! But wait…uhm…We have more pollution and trash than some of these places. Ooops?! Then…uhm….hold on…let me think….oh, yeah…now I remember. It’s for the children. Yep, that’s it. When all else fails, it’s for the children. You know those Milleniums not yet of voting age who don’t have thousands of dollars in educational debt that they can barely pay with their part-time barely above minimum wage jobs. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, all of this development is “for the children!” (raised eyebrow)
(Btw --If anyone is gullible enough to really believe that, please contact me. I have a bridge back to “tomorrow” I’d love to lease to you for 30-some years – it leads to rainbow land, that “quality of life” place where unicorns, honest politicians and other mythical creatures roam and play, bathed in the warm glow of pulsating neon lights, surrounded by gyrating technorock, where 70’s avocado green polyester bell-bottom pantsuits meets 80’s form-fitting hot pink with black-and-white zebra print aerobic spandex leotards in a fashion perversion gratefully put to rest by 90’s free-form and freestyle grunge. Enter Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”—politician censored edition---and exit rainbow land!)
CURRENT REAL ESTATE DEVELOPMENT TRENDS WILL LEAD TO FEWER HOMEOEWNERS AND MORE TRANSIENTS
Folks, this cycle of real estate development-turned-community destruction masquerading as “progress” will continue if something isn’t done to stop it. Existing “economic development” projects need to be slowed waaaaay down and re-evaluated within the context of current conditions and not merely the recycling of ideas that worked some 30- to 40+ years ago.
The reality here is that for the local real estate racket to continue to survive and thrive, it will require fewer people owning real estate and more people renting their homes by way of condominiums and apartments. Real estate developers can no longer rely upon brick and mortar commercial enterprises. Manufacturing is still alive and well, but has become dependent upon government hand-outs for all who are willing to play that game. So too are distribution warehouses and other supply chain components. If you need proof---take a drive out to the Waynedale area and look at all the transitional housing that has been developed out there. That is the future of Fort Wayne under continued real estate development masquerading as “economic development.”
LESS REAL ESTATE TAXES WILL LEAD TO MORE INCOME-BASED TAXES
And folks---think about what happens then. Sincerely, pause and reflect on what happens when more and more people are living in transitional housing (i.e. apartments, condos, etc) and are not home owners. The tax burden slowly but surely will shift from real estate taxes to income taxes.
Just. Like. What. Is. Currently. Being. Proposed.
In 2005. Let me repeat and emphasize that – in 2-0-0-5, over a decade ago, there was a State-funded local government efficiency report published:* http://www.in.gov/…/com…/2005/committees/reports/LGEF8B1.pdf That report discusses the need to replace property taxes with personal income taxes. This was a strategy AGREED upon by the Fort Wayne delegation involved in this report, which included: Senate Pro Temp David Long (owner of real estate being converted from residential to commercial along the Jefferson Blvd. corridor in SW FW), Win Moses (former Mayor-turned-State Rep-turned Redevelopment Commission leader), former State Senator Tom Wyss, Allen County Commissioner Linda Bloom (the Clerk of Court-turned-Commissioner who was for Fort Wayne unigov/phase I – county government consolidation before she realized it would eliminate her job; she’s up for re-election in 2018), former County Councilman Mike Cunegin, former County Councilman Darren Vogt (for Fort Wayne unigov/phase I – county government consolidation), and former City Councilman Sam Talarico, Jr. (helped start Harrison Square movement and headed up “Republicans for Henry” effort to help diminish Matt Kelty to make sure that pro-establishment candidate Tom Henry’s election could be explained away in case anyone questioned how a man who lost one of six districts to Tom Didier was suddenly able to win a majority vote in 5 out of 6 districts, including the district he had previously lost). Are you understanding this?
These people—elected, appointed and/or anointed leaders---all worked in collaboration with each other to develop a plan to start the slow migration of tax responsibility off of home owners/property owners and onto people working hard to earn incomes.
And what is currently happening? Fort Wayne City Council is getting ready to introduce more taxes. Taxes based on how much you are earning. Why? To support real estate development that will never be able to sustain itself.
WHY TURN TO THE TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES?
Folks, we all need to reach out to the Township Trustees, asking them to gain board approval, to place a referendum on the 2018 ballot that restricts the use of any taxes created or increased before the 2018 referendum to specific real estate development projects to be voted on and approve by the taxpayer public by future referendum, one per project, and that no taxes created or increased can be used on real estate development projects without that project undergoing the referendum process detailing the specifics of each proposed project. As stated at the beginning of this post, they have the ability to put a referendum on the ballot that circumvents the petition and remonstrance process.
To the Township Trustees --- Your time is now. Please help the taxpayers in each of your township districts. Or, alternatively, be prepared to undergo the risk of being voted out of office.
To Republicans – Are you really going to create an opportunity for Democrats?
To (real) Democrats – Are you going to rally to take advantage of this opportunity?
To Taxpayers – Call, write and email your Township Trustee:
