>A new robo call was issued over the weekend by the group calling themselves Concerned Citizens of Middletown. I received the call Friday when I check my messages on the answering machine.
This latest call talks about whether or not you fell stressed because you can’t make ends meet and have to live within a budget, something that the Middletown Township Committee has a hard time doing. The Township is currently $73 million in debt according to the message and will have to borrow more money to pay for tax appeals.
Listen to it and please comment, I am interested in seeing what readers think of this latest call that went out to residents. If you have a hard time hearing the audio (I tapped it off the answering machine), I transcribed the message below.
Hello, I am a middletown resident, stressed like you, and needing to cut my budget.
Have you heard the Township Committee cannot live within its budget?
They raise taxes, then borrow more money to cover poor planning.
Our debt level, currently at 73 million will have at least an additional 6 million to cover the tax appeals from the last re-evaluation.
Can your budget survive this kind of borrowing? Mine can’t.
Paid for by Concerned Citizens of Middletown.
