    What is the state of “leadership” in Allegheny County when our Democratic elected officials support the continuance of a base year scheme that is unconstitutionla because it favors the wealthiest while overtaxingthe folks who can least afford it. Why would our “progressive” leaders insist on following the lead of surrounding counties rather than commit themselves to produce the most accurate and fair values they can produce? Forget that lame excuse of competition with other counties. Have they visited Treesdale? Do they see empty houses on the Allegheny County side of the street. BTW when the school bus pulls up on the Allegheny side it says Pine Richland School District and on the other side it does not. If you can’t sell this county’s education and medical facilities as well as its cultural advantages you should not be an elected official.
