A mailer arrived at my house this past week that was so full of erroneous implications and information about State Senate candidate Norm Needleman that I am compelled to publicly correct some of it.
First, the truth about taxes in Essex: In Norm’s four terms as first selectman in Essex, taxes have remained lower than 90 percent of all other municipalities in the state. And, this year the property tax rate in Essex was lowered.
Second, the truth about Norm Needleman’s salary: When state support evaporated, he reduced the salary he accepted by 75 percent and donated the remaining 25 percent to area charities. To call it “wasteful spending” is more than misleading, it is an outright lie.
Norm Needleman is as much an “honest Abe” character as I have seen in politics. He is totally committed to public service. He has solved Essex’s problems with probity, ingenuity, and intelligence and now he wants to bring these character traits and skills to Hartford where, by the way, he will not accept a salary.
