I just finished reading the article (Housing for All, Current in Westfield July 31 edition) and I’m literally scratching my head. I believe that some of the people that are quoted in the article are the same people that fully supported the last property tax increase referendum in Westfield. That’s like praying for rain and then blaming God for the puddles.
When you continue to increase taxes on property, someone has to pay – homeowner always and the renter eventually. I know that this issue goes a bit deeper than that; however, voting for higher taxes equals higher costs of living for everyone.
