"He has guided the city as it copes with a declining tax base ..."
What is the most repeated, yet INCORRECT, statement about the City of Rochester? That its tax base is in decline. It isn't. And it has not been for quite some time, dating back to the latter years of the Johnson Administration. Look it up - every City budget document includes a display that details the year-to-year change in assessed values (i.e., the foundation of the tax base). It has been going up. It has not been in decline.
