Can someone explain why would you want to vote for a change of mayor when Joe Maturo is doing a great job? As an independent voter, I vote for my pocket; I don’t vote for a candidate because they have a D or an R in front of their name. I own two properties in two different towns; my taxes went up $800 on one and $760 on another. In East Haven, they went down $25, so to me, in a state that’s in the hole for $3.5 billion, for my taxes to go down that’s great.
The last time we did the “we need change,” my taxes went up $1,700 in four years, so again, I’d like to know why at this time would anyone vote for a new mayor.
