More whining that the poor are being priced out of Middlesex County. When property taxes continually increase, those who own houses face a higher tax bill, that's tax deductible. Those who rent face much higher rents, as landlords have to increase rent to cover their increased property taxes. Renters and people who rent are a burden to the tax payers who own property. Renters and not the home owner rely more on gov't services. The best way to improve the quality of life in Middlesex is to raise taxes and force out the folks who are on the bottom rung of the social ladder. Increasing property assessments is a back door way of cleaning up the neighborhood in the long run. Our county has too much slum housing and the best way to get rid of it, is by forcing them out and make them move to another county or a city on the lower Peninsula.
