Since Mayor Jerramiah Healy took office in 2005, our municipal / city property taxes have gone up 92 percent, which averages 13.12 percent per year! Yikes! Then on top of that, the city’s gross debt is up $107.2 million from 2005 through Dec 2012, the latest available public data. That’s a 14 percent annual increase. Another Yikes! The city is in debt to the tune of $896.4 million and for what? This guy is going to bankrupt us. He’s spending to the tune of an additional 27 percent per year and it’s coming out of your pocket! Maybe that’s why he requested a reval, to camouflage next year’s massive tax increase, if he gets elected.
The only people I can even fathom voting for Healy are resident city employees in no show or do little jobs. We can’t afford more of Jerramiah Healy. As a 30 year resident, I say no to Healy and vote yes for Fulop on May 14th.
