To the editor:

Democrats want you to believe that under Republican leadership taxes are high. They are confused again.

Under Democrat-controlled government (2007 to 2010) tax increases were double what they are under Republican leadership (2011 to 2014), and in 2015 taxes were raised less than 1 percent.

Under the Democrat control, the sewer plant and town roads were allowed to deteriorate, and they never corrected the flawed sewer billing system that was causing the town greater debt, endangering the upkeep of the sewer plant.

Under Republican team leadership, taxes were held down while repairing our infrastructure and remodeling two middle schools.

Republicans support the new senior center.
