And I know it would definitely benefit the Fisher. A packed in terms of the at the property tax issue which is certainly in a key issue although Harrisburg has been. Unwilling to address citizen issue rob. Are you a part of the the mindset that to property tax reform is a very important job for a state representative. I assume that's that's like a number one priority but I mean. Thousands and thousands seems consumed in their homes every year. As a result of this outlandish ridiculous cracks that the dinosaur it's their own it's gonna princes. You have to change and number one.

A 120 million billion dollar grip. Two billion dollar in sales. And people are looking at it I wouldn't. Gone and then 181000. Dollar jobs and they think it's incredible. There are more than thirteen thousand went from 7000. People purely epidemic in opulence since that happened I dropped 24%. I mean this it's fax you this. This revenue is based on Iraq.

You don't hear you're happy with your cube who put out this he's hurt or made you watch highlights fees. I don't believe in knows about it but. I would I would true that your office I was I was very humbled by winning is something I truly believe that we needed a source of revenue. And Republicans and there's a lot of it seriously and really really.
