"Uncontrolled search and seizure is one of the first and
most effective weapons in the arsenal of every arbitrary
government. Among deprivations of rights, none is so
effective in cowing a population, crushing the spirit of
the individual and putting terror in every heart."
Dear Chairman Fortuna:
- 1949, Justice Robert H. Jackson, former chief United
States prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials.
Thanks for yours of 23Jun11 to my 6May11 budget query.
I am not an accountant. Perhaps the Town can spend money it
hasn't budgeted to pay for construction of the Wastewater
Management District (WWMD). If there is a WWMD, it seems
improper not to budget for the expense and raise taxes.
"We are hopeful, as economies of scale are reached and
costs come down on this project, that there will be
fewer homeowners who choose to accept the borrowed money
and instead choose to pay for the system up front."
Why are WWMD property owners asked to pay anything? The
11Aug2009 Referendum (Question 2) said that the Town would
pay. The Town is bound by its Question 2 financing.
- Carl P. Fortuna, Jr., 23Jun11.
The Town is currently engaged in an unethical pseudo-legal
smokescreen to obfuscate the fact that its current WWMD
proposal is a fraud, a bait-and-switch to steal money from
WWMD property owners to pay for the Town's negligence,
injuring property owners within the WWMD a second time.
Electors can't vote to spend other people's money. If the
Town hasn't abandoned the WWMD, then money must be raised
through the property tax to pay for it.
Pace and Peace are retiring ahead of a ride on a rail.
Very truly yours,
Joel R. Anderson
