CFN – Do taxpayers in Cornwall really want their taxes to stop growing or gasp! Shrink? Watching council meetings over the budget and looking at the make up of council this scribbler isn’t so sure?
Councilors MacDonald, Thibault, the Mayor and to varying degrees some of the other councilors have had little to no problems bumping up taxes 2-4 percent per year now for awhile.
While some of this can simply be called “Fitzy” taxes, some surely cannot.
We know that the CAG group headed by Gerry Benson, Roy Perkins and friends has been a total bust with both gentlemen actually council for cash for their pet projects, and council gushed over them fumbling as fast as they could for the cheque book or gushing apologies if they just couldn’t afford the largess.
Where does council draw the lines? We just lost another 100+ jobs when Star Tek closed. There are tough economic times all over and a far larger proportion of residents in Cornwall are on one form or another of fixed incomes.
Is it time to really focus on the councilors individually and ask where they stand on taxes in Cornwall?
And our second poll of the morning.
