"I'm not just talking about my wife, I'm talking about my life, I can't seem to get that through to you. I'm not just talking about one person, I'm talking about everybody. I'm talking about form. I'm talking about content. I'm talking about interrelationships. I'm talking about God, the devil, Hell, Heaven. Do you understand....finally!" ~ Mr. Harding from One flew over the Cockoo's Nest.

I have paid property taxes for over 50 years in Pittsfield, most of which goes to support the schools. I have never had a child in the school system. Now I am on a fixed income and the taxes are skyrocketing and I am in danger of losing my home very soon. This program is a joke.

a more equitable deal would be that for people who have paid into the system for 50 years (better 40) and you no longer have children in the system you get a 50% tax break. No,. I am not holding my breath waiting for any politician to enact this. too much work.

The tax code needs to be restructured entirely and I believe the nation would be better served if most schools were not run by the govt. Liberals are too busy with depravity, taxes, spending, guns, cannibals in the Mideast, and abortion.
They call this E-V-O-L-V-I-N-G....
I call it sickening.

Please don't hold your breath. They'll just end up with your property that much sooner. It is a joke. A very dirty joke. The city councilors should forfeit their pay and serve just for the privilege of serving their community. The school committee members should not be paid. Please remember this when you vote down the new city charter. And the mayor should find ways to cut the budget. Very deep cuts! Even if that means he forfeit his pay.

The taxpayers were forced to subsidize the farmers market for more than what the city is reluctantly offering to taxpayers who have supported the city for 40, 50, 60, and possibly more years. The former crummy officially unethical mayor gave the most generous tax breaks in the history of the city to a teen beer blast eatery. And the current crummy mayor is reluctantly offering loyal taxpayers/citizens less than the crumbs that fell to the floor at the teen beer blast eatery that received the most generous tax gifts in the history of the city.

And you can bet I will vote against the new city charter. It is merely a veiled way for the connected to gain even more control over the serf population. Nothing in it benefits the taxpayer citizenry. God I hope people realize this and get out and vote against it. The elderly especially need to get out and vote against this. Don't believe all the hype promoting this that is coming down the pike. They will be coming to the senior center to sell this bag of crap....don't buy into it. Nod your head in approval and then go vote against it.
