ZERO TAX INCREASE CIRCUIT BREAKER
It is WRONG for the City of Kingston or the Kingston City Schools to call for Pay Increases and Tax Increases. We taxpayers especially in NY State have been taken for FOOLS for so long. The new taxpayer rallying cry should be DON'T INCREASE OUR TAXES TO GIVE UNION WORKERS RAISES. Let's get our local governments back in control with the flexibility they need to balance their budgets without increasing taxes. Our future teacher, police and fire contracts should have tax increase circuit breakers which say that salary increases are allowed for the year only if taxes can be maintained at ZERO INCREASE. Let's debate and discuss future Police, Fire and Teacher contracts in the open with the issue of NO Tax Increases firmly on the table.
