Re-vote the library tax
Wednesday, March 21, 2012 - 11:46 am

Property owners in the 13668 zip code have received their library bills Was your bill only $72? $72 is the average amount most taxpayers were going to pay according to the Norwood Library proponents. Were you excited to pay your $72? Were you happy to spend your social security cost of living raise on your tax bill? Were you thrilled to pay for a library that barely 25 percent of the community uses? Are you one of the 300 property owners in the 13668 zip code who live in the town of Stockholm who was told you couldn’t vote when you showed up on November 15, 2011, at the American Legion to vote? What type of election has no private place to mark your ballot? Why was anyone who is directly involved with the library even allowed to be part of the voting process beyond casting his or her own ballot? As property owners, we have the right to demand a re-vote on this issue. Our colonial forefathers stood up for what they believed in. Thomas Jefferson said, “I predict true happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” Are you ready to challenge this issue?
