Reduce Spending and Taxes in Lower Merion Township sign now

No More Tax Hikes!

--> Did you know just since 2002, the Township has raised taxes a startling 48.5\%? Yes thats right, 48.5\%!

--> Did you know that Commissioners are poised to raise your taxes or fees another 16\%-22\% for 2010?

--> Did you know that since 2000, the School District has raised taxes an astronomical 92\%?

--> Did you know that the Township is over $100 million in debt?

--> Did you know that total local debt is $492,775,765 (includes planned Township borrowing for 2010, School District and county debt)?

--> Did you ever think local government would put you a half a billion dollars in debt, and still counting?

--> Did you know that nationwide, 70\% of likely voters now favor a government that offers fewer services and imposes lower taxes than one that provides more services with higher taxes?

****************************************************************************

When does it end? When a majority of Commissioners understand that THERE IS A LIMIT to the amount of taxes you can afford.

****************************************************************************

Let your voice be heard and sign the petition below to tell the Commissioners to listen, and:

--> Give you a break! After previous tax increases and raising trash collection fees for 2010 - NO new real estate taxes for 2010

--> Review, identify and authorize only essential spending for 2010 - delay discretionary spending until the economy recovers

--> Impose meaningful limits on the amount of debt Commissioners can impose without a referendum

--> Make government live within its means. Increase 2010 spending at the same 1.5\% level that the Township forecasts 2010 revenue will rise.

--> Reduce the runaway 5.8\% increases in employee salary/wages and compensation to a level in line with what we taxpayers are experiencing (private sector salary/wages and compensation are rising at 0\% - 1.5\%)

****************************************************************************
Commissioners, you have a choice - restrain spending or raise taxes. We the undersigned demand that you restrain spending, and not raise taxes for 2010.
