Letter: Strategic thinking required from the Board of Selectmen

To the Editor:

The Board of Selectmen needs to be fair to the senior citizen taxpayers of Ridgefield. This is about justice, not politics.

Seniors make up 15% of the population but only receive approximately 1% of Ridgefield’s tax collection.

Where is the integrated strategic thinking and financial analysis?

If a senior is pushed out of their Ridgefield home due to high taxes, it’s likely that a family with children will move in and drive town expenses higher.

Since we all get old, a bigger tax break for seniors is a fair deal for everyone!
