(Listen) A De Facto Property Tax Hike for Litchfield County Towns?

December 17, 2018

Did you hear what Gov.-elect Ned Lamont said in a recent interview on NBC Connecticut’s “Face the Facts” show?

He said he will not raise Connecticut tax RATES…

…but Gov.-elect Lamont would indirectly raise your property taxes.

How?

In the attached audio clip, Gov.-elect Lamont says,


The more affluent school districts are going to have to do more on their own.  I can’t afford to subsidize everybody out there.”

I believe that defunding state education aid to our towns in Litchfield County and elsewhere will most certainly be a De Facto Property Tax Hike in those towns.

I am in strong opposition to the defunding of our schools.

What do YOU think?
