- Residents are facing a possible 10-12% increase in KCSD school taxes which is no longer sustainable for taxpayers.
- New York State is broke and should cut 30 Billion of spending over the next three years in actions from freezing state workers pay and benefits to axing aid for special education.
- School aid and Medicaid, the federal health plan for the poor account for 2/3 of the state budget.
- New York State is so broke it takes funds from itself to pay off Unapproved Debt.
We are living in a recession, depression and our fine city can no longer sustain the increases in taxes to offset the rising costs of our economy. Most of New York States debt is from falling tax collections and recent spending of billions of dollars. I urge the citizens of Kingston to take charge and become involved by motivating others to make a difference. Your tax dollars are at STAKE and the future of the City of Kingston. Stay Tuned!!!!!!!!!
