Were you aware of the referendum vote on the Town of Berlin’s budget?

Berlin residents voting on budget referendum

Sadly, many Berlin, Connecticut residents were unaware of the referendum held on April 26, 2011, wherein only 7% of its citizens voted to approve the Town’s budget of $70 million.

518 individuals voted in favor of the budget, with 422 voting against.

The first question is:  why did so few of Berlin’s residents turn out to vote on a budget that will raise their property taxes?  Don’t the taxpayers care about the amount of property taxes that they will have to pay in July?  Certainly they will care when they have to write the check on July 31, 2011.

The second question is:  why did 518 individuals vote in favor of the budget?  Why didn’t more residents vote it down?

These are questions that need answers from you, the property owners of Berlin, Connecticut.  It’s your Town; and if you care about the amount of taxes you are paying, then you must get involved.

Join the Berlin Connecticut Property Owners Association today.  And stop complaining about your tax bill.  Do something about it by organizing and assembling into one voice loud enough to be listened to our Town leaders.

Perhaps it’s time for Berlin to register a third political party, an independent party, since neither the Democrats nor the Republicans can control the spending of our tax dollars.  Sign up today and voice your opinions.  You need to be heard now!
