West U mayor candidate Brandtner past due on property taxes
According to Harris County Tax Assessor Anne Harris Bennett, West University Place mayoral candidate Sonny Brandtner is not current on his property tax payments – the county website says Brandtner is in arrears to West University Place for an original balance of $3,325, part of an original Harris County property tax bill of $19,438.
Brandtner has not responded to many email and phone requests for comment.
Brandtner has been assessed a penalty of $1,749, and to avoid further penalties, the current balance of $21,187 must be paid by tomorrow.
The other mayoral candidates on the ballot, incumbent Mayor Susan Sample and Greg Micek, are current on their property tax payments.
All eight candidates for city council paid their property taxes on time.
