HIS TAXING AND SPENDING IS THE WORST

WE’VE SEEN……..

DUMP TOM MULLIGAN IN 2013!

Thomas MulliganOmaha City Councilman Tom Mulligan, District 7.

 

Council Member “ High Tax” Tom Mulligan did not care what his constituents think about tax hikes in Mayor Suttle’s FY 2011 budget. 

·       Our members say he does not return phone calls or reply to emails from his constituents.

·       He did not readily reply to interview requests from KFAB talk show hosts and then pompously demanded that they submit questions to him prior to an interview, a request rightly denied.

·       He did not reply to our NTF request that he scrutinize our issue paper promoting suggested budget cuts and fiscal reform at City Hall.

·       Do not expect replies to your future inquiries directed to him; he does not care what you think.

·       His voting record we have tracked since April, 2010 shows a blatant tax and spend perspective.

·       Among his workplace responsibilities at Union Pacific are budget control.  According to his rave biographical sketch on the City of Omaha website, Tom has an “excellent record” for cost control and raising customer satisfaction.  He certainly has not controlled costs in the FY 2011 budget or satisfied his angry taxpaying constituents. 

·       NE Taxpayers for Freedom has placed Councilman Tom Mulligan in our “RINO Stockade,” a pen reserved specifically for Republicans in Name Only. 

·       Please help us find a candidate now to run in his district for city council in the 2013 election.
