Too many taxes for Clarkston resident

July 28, 2010 - Dear Editor,

Now is not the time for new taxes! Asking a resident of the City of Clarkston to pay an additional $750 for a 5 mill increase on a property with a taxable value of $150,000 is unconscionable.

With all the other cities, townships, counties, state governments and school districts making drastic cuts in their budget, we should cut expenses, not raise taxes. To ask our fellow citizens, many of whom are struggling with unemployment, reduced salaries, higher healthcare costs, and paying their existing property taxes, to absorb a 5 mill increase in new taxes is totally unacceptable. Please vote no on the millage increase on Aug. 3.

Lorry and Stuart Mahler

Clarkston
