Other facts

I'm proud to be part of the current freeholder board, which is unified and successful in its ability to cut millions in taxes and spending. Meantime, core services remain intact. For example, our Meals on Wheels program provides 600 meals a day to seniors who are confined to their homes. The program I created in the county parks (Sneaker Sundays) to encourage walking as good healthy exercise continues to draw residents of all ages.

Mary Ann, You may have cut taxes somewhere, maybe for the rich. However, my taxes has been going up each year and for 2013 they are $171.60 more than 2012. This is not acceptable. My tax rate went from 2.048 to 2.145. I thought that senior citizens were not suppose to see an increase. This causes an increase in my mortgage payments and with everything else going up too except my wages it gets pretty hard. I just can not see how you can say you have cut property taxes 3 years in a row. Please explain. Mary Lou

I did leave a comment I have nothing else to say. Mary Lou
