Letter to the Editor: MRTC Vice Chairman Responds to Tax Increase

Letter to the Editor. Letters to the editor are published as a courtesy and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Middletown Insider Staff.  Below MRTC vice chairman responds to Mayor Dan Drew's budget calling for a .9 mill rate increase. The full budget will be delivered Monday and the Common Council and public will have a chance to comment later in the month.

Spending continues and yet growth is non existent in our City, state and country. Our grand list has gone down for the first time in many years and yet the budget continues to grow. 

What happens next year when the revaluation goes into affect? 

I feel bad for those seniors who live on fixed incomes and can't afford another increase in taxes.

William Wilson,
Middletown Republican Town Committee Vice Chairman
