“I’d really like to see our taxes lowered, but fighting the unions is not the way to do it. I don’t want people’s pay to get slashed,” Forte said this week when asked about what he sees as an important issue the City Council must deal with. “The best way to do that is to increase our revenues.”

He believes the city could get more revenue by encouraging developers to build “more housing that people like me and my friends can afford.”
