Post-Gazette: Onorato assails Corbett vote for tax increase 22 years ago

Read the story here.

Twenty-two years ago, Tom Corbett voted for a 20 percent property tax increase as a commissioner in Shaler, which should raise questions about the Republican’s ability to balance the state’s $28 billion budget, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dan Onorato argued today.

The Corbett campaign called Mr. Onorato’s remarks “a desperate act by a desperate candidate.”

Mr. Onorato called a press conference in front of the Shaler municipal building to assail Mr. Corbett over the long-ago property tax vote and remind voters that he never approved property tax increases as Allegheny County executive or as a Pittsburgh City Council member in the 1990s.
