YESS BACKS CAHILL'S TAX REFORM PLAN
Robin Yess, who is running against Cahill largly on the need for property tax reform, has coined the campaign slogan : Cahill no, Robin Yess.... well apparently last year Robin said YES to Assemblyman Kevin Cahill's property tax reform bill.. and gathered more than 300 signatures in support of it....more waffling and flip-flopping on Mrs. Yess' part.
"Highland resident Robin Vaccai-Yess, organizer of the New York Property Tax Reform Coalition [NYPropertyTaxReform.org], is advocating for legislation, including the Equity in Education Act, sponsored by Assemblyman Kevin Cahill, D-Kingston.
She has collected 300 signatures from 14 counties so far in her online petition and hopes to see a statewide grassroots effort in tax reform.
'This is an election year. This is the time to make noise,' said Vaccai-Yess, who works as a certified financial planner."
