Albemarle Truth in Taxation Alliance is a Political Action Committee (PAC) registered with the Virginia State Board of Elections. Its non-partisan mission is to promote more effective and efficient Albemarle County government, focusing on the budgeting process and taxation issues.
In 2007, Albemarle Truth in Taxation Alliance educated citizens about a state law requiring a proportional drop in the tax rate when assessments rise more than 1%, and also the Albemarle Supervisors' proposed 30% tax increase. ATTA's efforts resulted in a public outcry against the tax increase and a nearly $10 million savings to taxpayers.
ATTA announced the following members to its leadership team for 2011: Keith C.Drake, Pete Whitt, Betty Sevachko, Bill Smith, Jason Buyaki, Robert T. Short, Mark Setaro, Jim Stern, Tom Dulaney Slonaker, William E. Hopkinson, Chuck Lebo and Sarah Henley.
Keith C.Drake is the Chairman of ATTA. Peter Wurzer is the Director of Research of ATTA.
