Lack of leadership led to tax hike

To the editor:

I want to let the voters know that I am a Republican. The 21 years I’ve lived and paid taxes here, I’ve never been asked to join an organization called PRO (People’s Republican Organization). Therefore, I do not recognize this organization as a Republican organization.

The lack of leadership in our township committee is the reason why our taxes are out of control. We do not need a local purpose tax. My feelings are that we need a complete audit going back through the years to find out where our money was spent.

There seems to be a lack of any knowledge as far as how the township income was spent. When asked, this tight knit committee does not have answers. The taxpayers have the right to know the answers to these questions.
