LettersLETTER TO THE EDITOR: Sarlo forced me out

(Sept. 16, 2010) — TO THE EDITOR:

Senator Paul Sarlo, people are losing their jobs and losing their homes to foreclosure. I do not see any politician calling for a tax freeze. I am going to represent every homeowner who is in the same boat I am.

Taxes have gone through the roof and yet nothing is done by you or any politician. I have no children in school, yet I pay school taxes.

Roll up your sleeves and do something about it. Senator, you have senior citizens who are living on fixed incomes and cannot survive. Yet nothing is done. Senator, the last laugh is on you. I am moving to South Jersey because you and your people forced me out.
