Letter: No on Harvard referendums

To the Editor:

Vote “no” on the two city of Harvard property tax increases referendums on the April 4 election ballot.

If anyone needs any extra motivation for voting “no” on any property tax increase referendum, just remember the last decade of your property values plummeting 30 percent and more, and of mortgages “underwater,” and of foreclosure notices, and the “deaf ear” you got pleading with taxing bodies for lower levies.

And remember that, in some “out-of-body” jiu jitsu logic, the taxers enjoyed 20 percent to 30 percent and greater increases over that same period you were in freefall, insulating themselves from the “Great Recession” atop your suffering.

So now, when these same taxers come to you obfuscating facts, crying big “crocodile tears” of Armageddon scenarios and “poor-mouthing” their plight in order to finesse your vote, your answer shouldn’t be “no”; it should be:

“Hell No!”
