Letter: Disappointed About Proposed Tax Increase

I was disappointed but not surprised to hear that John Venditto just proposed a tax increase because, after all, this continues the pattern of the all-Republican Oyster Bay Town Board. Despite the fact that seven out of 10 other towns on Long Island have found a way to hold the line on taxes, Oyster Bay has followed its normal playbook of increasing taxes in a non-election year. This maintains the practice, which has led to a 45 percent increase in taxes over the last six years.  This translates to an average increase on your and my tax bills of approximately $600. My one hope is that Councilwoman Rebecca Alesia cannot possibly vote for this increase, inasmuch as she is running for reelection on the “Tax Revolt” line.
