Wants to keep Fairfield taxes reasonable

To the Editor:

Various sources in town government are reporting an increase in the town of Fairfield’s 2013-14 budget of between 6 and 8%. The budget season is about to begin and proceed through approvals by the BOE, BOS, BOF, with final approval by the RTM in mid may.

FGG is working to keep Fairfield affordable by reducing spending in many budget areas that many of our supporters (seniors, empty nesters, parents, teachers, singles, etc.) have brought to our attention. I hope you have seen the many letters to the editor written by Joan Fortuna, captain of the FGG Fair Share Tax issue and Bud Morten, who wrote about the subsidy 70% of us are paying. Bud’s data is provocative and has hit the newspapers at the perfect time.

Dr. Title, superintendent of the Fairfield Public Schools, will speak to our supporters at the next meeting of FGG on Thursday, Jan. 10, at the Scandinavian Club, 1351 So. Pine Creek Road, at 7 p.m. The meeting is open to the public and if you are interested in attending please register at [email protected]

FGG is grateful that a growing number of people in Fairfield recognize that we have a serious problem with affordability and want to be better informed on the issues. Fair-TV is the best place to stay informed as every town meeting is now being video taped and can be accessed on demand. FGG encourages those who would like to become even more involved to speak at public meetings, write letters to the editor. The more people who are willing to get involved at any level in this effort, the more likely it is that it will be possible to make a positive difference at keeping Fairfield affordable.
