Unjust New Haven Tax Increase
We, the undersigned, residents of the City of New Haven strongly object to our elected officials' decision to dramatically increase taxes by 11% for the 2018/2019 fiscal year. These massive tax increases are unsustainable for homeowners, renters, and businesses trying to stay in New Haven. We can no longer tolerate unbalanced budgets, failure to look critically at cutting spending, and lack of transparency in financial planning. We demand that our elected officials represent the interests of tax paying residents and seek immediate action to address the city's financial problems. We demand a direct repeal of this unfair tax increase.
