- His last conversation with Mayor Suttle about three weeks ago was 'icy but polite.' Yeah, knowing Suttle we bet.
- Taxing the sewer fees was a 'stealth' property tax increase
- It would be easier for a mayor who was a 'good Sheppard' of the citizen's tax dollars to justify to them the need for a property tax increase

With that said, White was also trying to reinvent himself by suggesting that the country needed folks that weren't concerned about party (he should talk) and who could take the power back. In the interview White tried to steel back the 9-12ers and tea party members his party has lost by saying that he was basically a libertarian, suggesting that he opposed requirements for motorcyclists to wear helmets and increased property taxes. It will be interesting to see how that platform plays out.
