Well, pays to have a Dem-Party Oligarchy here in Downtown Edison - 2017 Muni tax rate up another 1.5%?!?

Let's give Mayor Tom 'Now 15.4%' ChoiLankey a big round of applause for finishing up his first term in office with yet another tax increase in his Introduced 2017 Muni-budget.  His budget which I just saw up here on the township's website comes with a Muni-tax rate of $1.288, which is up 1.9-Cents or 1.5% over last years rate of $1.269.

Looks like it's the same rate they used to send out the 3rd qtr. estimated tax bills you can see in a previous post.

So, Señor Lankey completes his first four-year term with a Cumulative Muni-tax increase of 15.4%!?! And you thought they were looking to $tabilize taxes here in the 'DemBadLands' of Downtown Edison.

But wait, there's hope the latest tax increase can be cut by those 7 Clerks, aka Edison Council, over there at 100 Oligarchy Boulevard since they still have to review and adopt the 2017 Muni budget.

Double DUH!

Remember the definition of an Oligarchy. After reviewing Señor Lankey's first three budgets with a total Muni-tax increase of 13.7%, they tore into THOSE BUDGETS and AMENDED AND ADOPTED THEM TO 13.7%.

Anyhoo, good to be running unopposed and not worried about tax increases in an election year.
