'Judy Schwank raised our property taxes 52%'

If you watched "Journalists Roundtable" on the Pennsylvania Cable Network Thursday night, I predicted Republican Larry Medaglia would hammer Democrat Judy Schwank on her record of raising taxes while she served as a Berks County commissioner.

And guess what shows up in mailboxes all over Berks County on Friday? A mailing on behalf of Medaglia with big bold letters stating: "Judy Schwank Raised Our Property Taxes 52%"

Schwank voted for an 18% property tax hike in 2001 and followed it up with a 34% property tax hike in 2004.

The flier reminds voters: "She Raised Our Taxes Before. She'll Do It Again."

The special election to fill the unexpired term in the 11th State Senate District is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15.

"Journalists Roundtable" will be shown again Sunday at 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. and Monday at 10 a.m. on the Pennsylvania Cable Network. Check the PCN website for the cable channel in your area.
