Senate District 2 (Parsonsfield, Cornish, Limerick, Newfield, Acton, Shapleigh, Lebanon, Berwick, North Berwick, Wells) this letter is for you.

As a Berwick Citizen and Resident I would like to thank a few people for the wonderful mailings I and every other Taxpayer in this town received on October 11, 2006. Yes, I am talking about the re-assessments.

On February 3, 2005 the Maine State Senate had a bill before them known as LD 2. This bill would have limited property tax evaluations not to what the property can be sold for as of today, providing you wish to sell it, but what you, the owner, paid for it. As listed in the bill the property must be used as a homestead to support a personal residence. It would not have protected out of state interests or developers. It would have protected us, the people who live, raise our families and ultimately retire in this state. It would have provided us with the ability to create a more level headed personal budget without having some “surprise” slap us in the face when we least expect it, especially for those of us who are operating on fixed incomes.

Why, oh why would anyone want to vote no on LD 2. I can’t even begin to imagine why the people who work for us, that we placed in these positions to protect our interest, would say no. The only answer would be that they are protecting someone else’s interest.

Senate District 2 residents, when you go to the polls on November 7’th take a good look at your property taxes then thank Senator Dick Nass for his NO vote on LD 2 and place your vote for Tom Wright!!
