Urges no vote on Bethel budget
I am writing to you today as a lifelong Town of Bethel resident with two school-age kids in the Bethel school system. I have spoken out against this outrageous Bethel budget at every meeting held, we the taxpayers are getting crushed by yearly increases on our houses that are losing value or holding stagnant.
My taxes were lower, and my home was worth more just eight years ago. The current leadership running the town I love and raise my family in has a severe spending problem! This has gone unchecked for too long and must be fixed.
I personally will do all I can to control spending, so that it aligns with the grand list and incoming tax rolls. This will allow Bethel to put forth a balanced budget like our neighboring city of Danbury has under the guidance of Mayor Mark’s great leadership.
I hope all my fellow residents in Bethel exercise their Constitutional right to vote and send this budget back for additional cuts. Please VOTE NO! on Thursday, April 11, to this incredibly large and inflated town budget.
