Town should do what it can to retain senior population

To the Editor:

Come on, be fair. Many of us seniors are the reason we have such a great Fairfield. Now we are being taxed out of town. Why not put up a sign “No seniors wanted in Fairfield.”

Do not run us out of town. We have raised our families, served on commissions, boards, RTM, PTA, Scouts, churches, etc. Give us a break.

I agree with Joan Fortuna. Many towns and states freeze senior’s taxes at a certain age, some have a homestead act where your taxes are frozen when you purchase your home. Why can’t Fairfield adopt a program that is similar?

Then I read where there is no money for a director of the senior center. If you live in Fairfield, and haven’t done so yet, visit the senior center. It is a wonderful meeting center for us seniors. The fellowship is worth its weight in gold. Sharing, caring, learning is what life is all about at any age. Don’t cut us short. We are an important part of Fairfield.

Make Fairfield affordable for us to stay in our homes and keep our senior center on track. Make it a five-star center and make Fairfield a town that is our today and your tomorrow.
