NYC Mayor Race: Republican Malliotakis pledges to freeze property taxes in first year in office

Share:

Republican mayoral candidate Nicole Malliotakis pledged Monday to freeze property taxes in her first year in office and then impose a cap of 2 percent or less for the remainder of her term.

“You have to respect the taxpayers,” the Staten Island assemblywoman said outside Panepinto Bakery in Middle Village, Queens. “They are not ATM machines.”

Ripping Mayor de Blasio, she added, “You can’t continue to go back to them year after year, and within 3 1/2 years ask them to increase the property taxes 28 percent. It’s unconscionable. I will not do that.”

Even though the city has not increased the property tax rate during de Blasio’s tenure, it keeps collecting more from the tax each year as assessments increase.
