Windsor Voters it is time once again to get your paper & pencil & sit down & figure out how much more this year your family can afford to spend paying for the high & inflated budget which has been put in front of us to pay with another tax increase on our property taxes…
Keep in mind that our state officials are also planning to increase our income taxes & adding taxes on items not previously taxed, in addition to raising the taxes on items we’ve got to pay for our gas, cigarettes, & wine
Many do not have the ability to attend the town hall meetings on a regular basis due to family & work obligations, but were you aware that even if you do not get cable tv into your home you can watch many of our town hall meetings online?
Below is a clip of the last portion of the Windsor Town Council Meeting that was held on April 27th 2015 from the town website.
Clicking the link will open the video in a new window for you to see the last 15 or so minutes of the 2+hours that took place.
Windsor Town Council Meeting 2-27-15
Shop Small Saturday is normally the day after Black Friday
I think to help our Mom & Pop Shops we need to not shop just the 1 day
To help our economy in CT let’s Buy Local & Buy American Made.
I know sometimes it’s faster & cheaper to run into a big box store, but there are many small shops that are reasonably priced & you can see if they are open to the lost art of haggling & get a better deal.
With some planning we can at least buy gifts for holiday giving from our local family owned businesses & crafts people in the state.
We can also buy more of our food locally at family farms. We have several pick your own farms in CT so you know it’s fresh since you & the family spent some fun family time picking the fruits.
So as we start wrapping up the school year & get ready for summer, let’s shop small CT. I hope that you’ll share the small shops that you find good deals & great services at with us.
This video is a Live Stream of the forum in Portland CT Feb 22nd 2014 that was put together by parents fighting common core in CT
It has some glitches & the lunch break was recorded because the way that the setup for the Live Stream worked to turn off the stream for the breaks would have lost the connection that the Live Viewers saw
