Should HHMC Get $6 million tax cut?

Big Gun Liberals Coming Out to Say "YES"

The Howard Hughes Medical Center Request to grant a full county tax exemption will be Number One on the agenda at 6:30 p.m. tonight.

Yesterday, 20 HHMC executives appeared at a Finance and Government Committee meeting to give a short 30 minute discussion on the topic.

Most of the public has been speaking against it. If you have an opinion, please get to the Public Hearing tonight. It will be Number One on the agenda. There is a lot of big gun Liberal Establishment types (School Board Superintendent Ed Hatrick and Governor Mark Warner's Commerce Secretary) coming in to say how this giant mega endowment foundation should be granted a tax exemption.

A Constituent wrote me "It's reverse Robinhood. The Howard Hughes Medical Center is asking the Board of Supervisors to raise $6 million per year in extra taxes on the poor and middle-class in order to subsidize a $10 billion operation."

Both County treasurer Roger Zurn and, tonight, the Loudoun County Republican Committee have urged that this is a lot of money for a well-off institution to ask Loudoun taxpayers to pay. Let me know where you stand.
