Dear Editor,

I find it ironic that the Democrats running for Borough Council say they are going to hold down taxes. Last time they were in charge (2009), taxes skyrocketed, with the average homeowner seeing a $404 increase.

To make matters worse, while voting to raise taxes $404, the Democrats tried to raise their own pay. That’s right, they voted to give themselves a raise.

The race in South Plainfield is very much like the race statewide. Barbara Buono voted to raise taxes and to give herself a raise, and so did the local Democrats in South Plainfield when they had the chance. Neither will get my vote.
