  1. Wo be to any public official who advocates raising taxes, especially a totally absurd 9.35mill levy. For many who live on a very fixed and low income, a reduced cost of living benefit, a 40% loss on investments and rapidly increasing service fees, potential rent increases, What has happened to good, old fiscal responsibility???
