Aaronson to Dems: ‘Being a Democrat, I don’t think taxes are a dirty word’by George Bennett | February 3rd, 2011
“I know what I want to do, I want to give you the services,” Aaronson told the audience of about 100 Democratic activists west of Delray Beach.
“But if you tell me that you don’t want the services, you’re willing to cut back, and you don’t want to go to the library seven days a week — cut it down to two days — and if you don’t want the children to have the lights in the park, and you don’t want to have as many sheriff’s deputies on the road, you tell me, then I’ll know what to do.
“But I think, being a Democrat, I don’t think taxes are a dirty word. Taxes are what makes the world go ’round. And we are not Republicans, so we have to think a little differently. And if we have to take another buck out of our pocket, we want the people to have, we want the children to have,” the five-term incumbent said.
