Sinn Féin Councillor Daithí Doolan has today called on all Dublin City Councillors to support a Sinn Féin motion to reduce the Local Property Tax by 15%. The motion will be before the council this coming Monday.
Councillor Doolan said:
"Sinn Féin continues to actively oppose the government's property tax. It is an unfair, unjust tax that puts the burden on middle and low-income households.
"We are committed to reversing this tax if elected to government. But in the meantime we aim to reduce the burden of this tax for households here in Dublin.
“The motion on Monday night will commit Dublin City Council to supporting the maximum cut of 15% for 2015.
"Sinn Féin will also defend jobs and local services. We will be working with councillors on the other three Dublin local authorities to defend funding for local government. We will be calling on Dublin TDs to guard against any further cuts to local authorities’ grants.
"Sinn Féin will be looking for cross party support for our motion this Monday and in our campaign against government cuts."
