Raised taxes 2 years in in a row as NSB mayor while not paying his own
NEW SMYERNA BEACH, Fla. -- Sixth Congressional candidate Adam Barringer, whose political career is built on a flimsy house of cards with his charm and good looks as selling points, himself up, is now touting himself as "the first candidate in the race to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge!"
Barringer, the former two-term mayor of New Smyrna Beach, who is running as a running as a Republican, said: "As a small business owner and former mayor, I know that lower taxes will lread to more prosperity. "
This is the same politician, who in his final two years as mayor before exiting in 2014, voted to raise everyone else's taxes while not bothering to pay his own.
When confronted during his final months in the municipal post at a luncheonat by HeadlineSurfer.com with a video camera, Barringer made a funny face and walked off. By the close of business that day, the outstanding tax debt was finally shown as paid.
