TBOR’S Ashley Sellers Featured On Local CBS Affiliate in Guntersville

Last night TBOR Events Coordinator Ashley Sellers was a guest on the local CBS affiliate in Guntersville to discuss the property tax increase for city residents that failed to pass in a special election on May 11th. An excerpt from Ashley’s interview can be found below.

“The biggest thing that I found and the other groups found, is when we called people and went door-to-door people had no idea what we were even talking about,” says TBOR event coordinator Ashley Sellers.

“She tells News 19 they wanted the increase to fail because the estimated cost of construction was outdated due to COVID-10-caused inflated material prices and because they also felt that $43 million price tag was excessive for a town of 8,000 people.”

“Even if the tax referendum had passed, it wouldn’t have been enough to build the school,” says Sellers. “It would have been the 16th tax increase in 10 years in the city of Guntersville and the fourth property tax increase in that same 10-year-period”
