I have recently seen a mail piece for Mayor Richetelli’s campaign and I am deeply disturbed by some of his alleged accomplishments. The Mayor has stated numerous times that he lowered taxes this year, and that is false.
I worked for months with the other Democratic Aldermen to create a budget that ensured no jobs were cut and that city services would not be compromised. The end result was a budget that lowered taxes for all Milford residents. This budget passed without a single republican vote.
I am outraged that the Mayor would claim this accomplishment as his own, when his budget accounted for an increase in spending and, most of all, an increase in taxes. I feel Milford residents deserve to know the truth about this year’s budget process, not a misleading, election-year tactic on behalf of the Mayor.
As an Alderman seeking re-election I am running on my own record, I ask that the Mayor do the same.
