Vote No on Bond Referendum

We do not need a bond referendum for roads, and higher taxes.

Everyone agrees that the roadwork covered by the upcoming Groton bond referendum could be financed through the regular budget process at a savings of about two-and-a-half million dollars in interest and fees.  The argument in favor of bonding is that the Town Council and the RTM, in order to make it appear that they were holding down taxes, refused to appropriate sufficient funds to fix the roads, and a voter-approved referendum is the only way to get the work done.

The answer is simple.  Vote "No" on the referendum.  Vote the Council and RTM members who failed to maintain our infrastructure out of office.  Fix the roads through the normal budget process, and save two-and-a-half million dollars that will otherwise be added to your taxes.
