Letter: Seniors deserve fair local tax policies

To the Editor:

The Democratic Party seeks unity and the best way to achieve that goal is to have a fair tax policy on the local and state level.

Senior citizen homeowners, who do not have public school children, should have a significant tax break on property taxes. Also, local school funding needs to have additional streams of revenue including charitable funding and a statewide value added tax.

Senior citizens must not be forced to sell their safe homes because the Democratic Party refuses to be innovative on public school funding. Senior citizens deserve a fair share of tax revenue collected by every town.

Unity means we are all in it together, so please help both our seniors and our children. Hopefully the Democrats will listen.
