His special interest has always been a school for the South End area. He pushes hard for industrial and municipal tax reform for the Saint John area. Gerry believes that Saint John is strictly an industrial city and its people are required to make unique sacrifices not made in other cities, because of this, they deserve a much lower tax rate.
