Cheryl Williams has a strong conservative record when it comes to administering tax dollars. She knows that tax dollars are your dollars.
The county tax rate has been reduced by 13% since 2010, the year Cheryl took office. Cheryl Williams also led the charge to eliminate a costly retiree health care plan for county employees that were eligible for Medicare. By scrapping that one program, she was able to erase a $96 million liability, save taxpayers $5 million a year and release $9 million in cash reserves that was previously committed to the program. This, along with fully funding the existing county employee pension obligation, saved the citizens $3 million of interest annually.
