In 2007, then Roane County executive Mike Farmer lobbied hard for a 25-cent increase in the property tax rate. His lobbying worked, as the Roane County Commission approved the 25-cent rate hike that year.
Farmer was voted out of office in 2010, but he’s picked up a petition to run for county executive again in this year’s election.
Despite his record of lobbying for big tax increases, Farmer claims he’s not the tax increase candidate in this year’s race.
“I would hope that no tax increase is necessary,” he said.
