Don’t want property tax hikes? Speak out!

February 21, 2017

Gov. Malloy’s budget proposal shifts the state’s burdens onto towns and will lead to significant local property tax hikes.

What can you do about it?

I urge taxpayers in Easton, Fairfield, Newtown, Weston, and Westport to speak out.

A public hearing on this topic is being held today and tonight at the Legislative Office Building.

Those who wish to testify can do so today – and in the future – by:

  1. sending an email to: AppTestimony@cga.ct.gov (the email may be as brief as you like)
  2. copying me at Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.gov
  3. putting “Education Budget Cuts” in the Subject Line
  4. sharing this information with concerned property taxpayers.

Tell state lawmakers to craft a state budget which is fair to towns, schools and taxpayers!
