Conroe, August 13 – Montgomery County taxpayers are well aware that the primary purpose of the Montgomery Central Appraisal District Board of Directors is to set reappraisal policies so that property tax appraisals will skyrocket, so that government spending of all governmental entities relying upon property taxation may continue to increase their spending as rapidly as possible. MCAD’s Board has nothing whatsoever to do with public service. Rather, it’s focus is upon public confiscation.
Therefore, it’s not surprising that Montgomery County Tax Assessor-Collector Tammy McRae confirmed on Friday Bob Casey, who recently received an appointment from Montgomery County taxing entities to raise taxes for them on the MCAD Board of Directors has resigned, because “He has a new grand baby and I understand he wants to spend more time with the family.” Casey probably realizes that by the time his grandbaby is grown, we’ll all be working full-time for the government at the rate of tax increases that MCAD has perpetrated upon us.
The Montgomery County Commissioners Court will nominate someone else to serve on the MCAD Board of Directors at its regular Commissioners Court meeting on Tuesday, August 14, 2018. During his eight months in office, Casey was a reliable “establishment” member of the Board of Directors who assented to all of the staff’s recommendations for aggressive reappraisal policies.
MCAD taxing entities may nominate Board of Directors members. A formula, allocating votes by the taxing entities based upon the amount of their tax revenues, gives the Conroe ISD and the Montgomery County government the controlling votes in the election.
Staunch pro-taxation advocate Bruce Tough currently serves as Chairman of the Board with liberal Precinct 1 County Commissioner Mike Meador serving as Vice Chairman. The remainder of the Board of Directors – Barry Blanton and Bonar Luzey II – are both reliable pro-taxation votes.
