If other senior citizens in the city of Westbrook believe, as I do, that we are overtaxed and underappreciated for the years of paying the ever-increasing burden of school taxes, then please join me in making the request for tax relief known to the city – either in person, preferably, or by letter.

The time has long since passed that seniors have earned a break on their school taxes. If the city councilors or school board members had to live within the confines of a restricted budget, you can bet they would not be so careless about imposing such high school taxes, which I, for one, have been paying for over 50 years!
