In this day and age with its petroleum-driven cost increases in all sectors, how can any County Commissioner or member of the Strafford County Legislative Delegation justify a 15% increase in county taxes for the upcoming fiscal year. We taxpayers are struggling to maintain a standard of living that doesn't require deciding between gas for the car, heating oil for the home, or food for the family. We are not seeing 15% increases in our wages, yet our elected officials (who are supposed to be looking out for us) are merrily authorizing exorbitant increases in our taxes. The time has come to look at what services they should cut back or discontinue. I'm sure there are some entitlements out there that could be examined for efficiency and essentiality.
