Letter To The Editor
Tax Plan for your town

the waterfront properties and properties over $250,000 evaluation.
Then what? We still have to educate 700-800 school children.
We still have to have all the roads maintained, plowed and sanded.
to pay Town employees and our share of the County taxes etc.
Okay, who pays more than they normally would to make up the
difference? The middle income people and the working poor.

must have a balanced budget every year. Why is it allowed at
the Federal level?
how can we allow our great, great grandchildren to pay for our
mistakes. What an inheritance; Trillions of dollars of debt to
‘ease the tax burden’ of Corporations, Big Oil, Big Pharma, the
Insurance industry and other corporations.
people” will have ‘our say’ in the next elections. We will not
stand for this blatant imbalance and unfairness. Thomas Jefferson
said, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.” Watch and listen.
