Tuesday evening 6 pm I met with the Windsor coalition of taxpayers band of warriors. They are on a roll, nothing flashy, just a steady drumbeat of small wins.
On the other hand that evening the Windsor Selectmen and assorted powers that be in this small hamlet were up late at the town hall pretending to be in charge.
Really, not much worse could be happening to them unless say after the meeting they walked out in the dark and stepped in a great big heap of fresh, steaming, werewolf doo-doo.
These “public servants” have in the last two years:
Lost TWO Right to Know cases.
Had to pay court costs for the last pro se case.
Finally been forced to file Municipal Service forms required by state statute.
Failed to put a Treasurers Report in the 2007 Town Report.
Have been exposed for not putting liens on ANY individuals with overdue property taxes.
Have been found to have some properties get FIVE years behind in property taxes.
Lost the ability to deal with the taxpayer group without going through the town attorney.
Created, through their own incompetence, a situation that will expose how much of a paper tiger phony the NH Dept of Revenue is when it comes to setting tax rates.
(This is for starters)
But they are still in charge! Ain’t Democracy beautiful.
The Windsor Selectmen show why in years past towns put a list of delinquent taxpayers IN THE TOWN REPORT. They did so for good reason. This way, taxpayers can see if they are shouldering the load in town for others.
You will find that people who pay taxes vote differently than the ones who do not. It is called “sensibly.”
These incompetents may get re-elected next March. But what will they really win?
