To the Editor,
My husband and I moved to West Hartford in 1997. I was thrilled with the services we received based on the taxes we paid. I can no longer say that.
In 2003 when the majority party took over I have seen a consistent decline in services and a consistent property tax increase (and let us not forget the mill rate increase last year!) that is exceeding the cost of living for many of our town residents. In the past five years alone our property taxes have increased 25%!
I urge the residents of West Hartford to vote Row B for Town Council and Board of Education candidates that will be financially responsible with your tax dollars.
