The point here is you're accusing him of breaking a promise,
while from what I can see, he never make the absolute promise to
decrease property taxes to begin with and for the next two years,

He said he's "working to further reduce property taxes". He
didn't "promise" that he would be successful, which is what
you've implied. At the same time, the
budget he just submitted calls for property tax reductions in
the next two years. I'd say he's met the campaign promise.
Mine are going up over 10% in a state under complete Democrat control, DE.
Not the governors fault but the local school district that increased
taxes, but us seniors in DE get a $500 deduction that the Dem governor
wants to do away with.

It's been a long time since the taxes here have gone up...just found it
so typical that they have gone up at a time when the Gov is telling us
he's working to bring them down.
If he can fulfill his "promise" and either freeze the current rate or lowers
it and your house continues to appreciate and in turn raise your taxes, are
you still going to complain? Or are you going to appreciate that you now

Depends. In Indiana for instance, the local government sets the rate but
the State okays and has some very specific requirements and it is state
law that property taxes can't go up more than a set amount every year.
It is a local tax in name only.

+1 That is the truth. The local (smaller) entities usually have a better
handle on this because they may know the people. Even in our little burg one
of the stupidvisors wanted a golf course. He got it and we pay. He takes a
lot of heat for this and will soon be voted out.
You think you own your house? Don't pay your taxes for three years and
you'll see how much you own.
