To the Editor:
Democrat Nick Kapoor says he’s supporting increased local property taxes next year because of the pandemic, but Nick’s always supported tax increases. His support for the 8.9% teacher salary increase was pre-pandemic as was his support for the 5.7% BOE increase proposed pre-pandemic by a Superintendent the BOE then placed on administrative leave.
His statements on increasing your property taxes are a matter of public record. While his record of being a tax and spend advocate is scary, it certainly isn’t a scare tactic.
Democrats in Connecticut have run this state for decades. Our state ranking of 5th highest tax burden in America is a fact as is their control of all state wide taxation and spending policies. As a candidate Kapoor boasts on his website that “Income inequality is unacceptable.” And that “Taxes must be used to address this problem.” When called out on his latest taxation scheme Kapoor states that he will, “fight against new taxes including any type of income equality tax.”
So how does Kapoor plan to keep his promise of opposing new taxes while paying for income inequality?
Perhaps he doesn’t think raising existing taxes to fund new expenses counts as new taxes?
Kapoor’s public record in Monroe shows a clear history of raising your local property tax. That’s a fact.
