Washington Township Finance Officer Confirms 2001 - 2009 Average Municipal Tax Increase of 3.5%

As a follow up to yesterday's post on Mayor Short's campaign mailer, Washington Township Financial Officer Kevin Lifer has confirmed 3.5% as the average annual Washington Township municipal tax increase for the years 2001 through 2009. This confirmed 3.5% average tax increase is 75% higher than the 2% average tax increase mentioned in Mayor Short's campaign mailer, which was paid for by the Morris County Republican Committee.

To date, I have not received a response to inquires placed to Mayor Ken Short and MCRC Chairman John Sette on the validity of the mailer's 2% average tax increase claim.
