Wettick Watch

You can read the comments in a post here from January to see how Bram has put his money down on Monday March 9th for when we will see a ruling from the PA supreme court on the (PA) constitutionality of the base year assessment system. Some have told me privately they expect the court to punt this down the road as long as possible, but they will have to rule someday. Bram may have nailed it.

If correct, will this be Bram's entree into the world of elite Blawgdom? Does anyone have an over/under running on the date of the ruling or what the ruling will say? Will the ruling (whenever it comes) mark the real beginning of the governors race coming down the pike?

tick tock .......

What do I would I receive as an elite Blawgger? Smoother mousepads? Better quality robes? The best seat in the room at PittPoint?

There is also this. I believe Mr. Onorato has not wanted to raise property taxes since this (State) Supreme Court case has been hanging fire for some time. If the Supremes do rule on Monday, that would at least give Mr. Onorato the closure he would need to decide about raising property taxes, in relation to today's hearing. It would be interesting to see what a reassessment would look like, in the face of nationally declining home prices. And as someone (I honestly don’t remember who) said, there are essentially all the other Pennsylvania Counties that may be quite irritated with Dan the Tax Man come Monday.

I've talked to your neighbors. They don't care about the quality of the robe, so long as you remember to tie it closed when you step on the porch.

I worry about that.

I won't be suprised if the Court finds the Base Year system unconstitutional in Allegheny County but constitutional elsewhere. As inconsistent as that statement is, I'll bet they find some way to justify it.
