Charlie 'I Abstain' Tomaro and the MC Freeholders score up another tax increase for 2015!?!

Well. just saw this piece here in the HNT. Seems the Middlesex County Freeholders have adopted their 2015 budget - and it comes with what they describe as on average, about a $20 increase in the county portion of your property tax bill here in the Downtown Edison branch of the 'DemBadLands.'

They also say that 'The amount to be raised for taxation in the 2015 county budget is less than one cent more than last year.' That's nice.

Of course they don't tell you that 'less than one cent more than last year' was on a 4 cent or 5.4% increase or that's some 15 cents since 2010.

Bet you can't wait to see what kind of tax ambush Mayor Tom '8%' ChoiLankey comes up with in this year's budget. Oh wait, Council Member Rob 'March on Trenton' Karabinchak will come to our rescue - he said he's against any tax increase this year from Mayor Tom '8%' ChoiLankey - as he was preparing to screen for reelection, of course.

Anyhoo, at least we're comforted in the knowledge that the county portion of your property tax bill only averages about 5% over the last 5 years.
