The taxpayers of Berlin, Connecticut cannot afford another increase in property taxes. We, the undersigned taxpayers, petition you to hold the line on property taxes and not to increase property taxes as long as unemployment remains above 5% in our country.
It is time to exercise fiscal restraint. No more increases in property taxes until or unless our economy recovers. Many of your citizens are suffering severe economic hardships, including the loss of jobs and homes, if not bankruptcy.
Please stop raising property taxes in Berlin, Connecticut. Property taxes are a regressive form of taxation; consequently, we need you to protect the wallets of the middle class citizens of Berlin, Connecticut by opposing any further increases in property taxes.
