Mayor James "Sonny" McCullough has a great house to sell you: his.

"I can't afford the taxes," McCullough explained.
 
McCullough said he has been taxed out of his home by the local rates and by last year's township-wide revaluation, which caused his property taxes to shoot up nearly 60 percent, to $31,056.
 
"It's more than what I can afford," McCullough said. "It's kind of disappointing. I thought I would be able to live and die in my home, but it's gotten to the point where it's gotten up so high."
