Antioch landlord tax Initiative is a great idea

Mark DiMercurio | August 20th, 2015

As a landlord and homeowner in Antioch.  I am very concerned by the number of out of town, out of state and out of country investors that are buying up all of our properties.  Not only does it squeeze out legitimate homebuyers who want to live in a home and take care of it, It also impacts the condition of our city.  Antioch has become a hotbed for investors and the wear on the community is showing.  I will gladly pay a tax and others should as well.  If these bulk investors are going to profit at the demise of our city, they should have some serious skin in the game.  Todays article in the times gives some further insight.
