Please attend this meeting to help Fred Rossiter keep his Special Magistrate contract with the Lee County Value Adjustment Board.
The VAB staff is recommending that Fred be fired from his contract as a special magistrate who recommends whether property owners should have their property tax ad valorem valuation reduced.
Staffers say Rossiter’s online seminar to help people represent themselves shows he is tilting toward the petitioners.
But Rossiter, a Cape Coral-based property appraiser who’s been a special magistrate for six years, says he’s only trying to correct the bias against the petitioner already built into the system.
The VAB consists of two County Commissioners, one School Board member, one Board of County Commissioners appointed member and one School Board appointed member.
The adjustment board UNFAIRLY decides not to review each petition, but instead to accept the decision of the Special Magistrate.
The Republican Liberty Caucus is a 527 voluntary grassroots membership organization dedicated to working within the Republican Party to advance the principles of individual rights, limited government and free markets. Founded in 1991, it is the oldest continuously-operating organization within the Liberty Republican movement.
Our goal is to influence Lee County political leadership and voters. We must join other local groups and remind our leaders and fellow citizens what the philosophy of liberty really means:
Lower and fewer taxes for individuals and businesses
The right of privacy for individuals
The right of law-abiding individuals to keep and bear arms
Balanced budgets through spending cuts
Freedom of speech for individuals
Protection of property rights for individuals and businesses
