To all my senior colleagues and friends:
The senior community in Rocky Hill needs a collective voice to bring to our town government. My goal is to form a group of concerned Rocky Hill Seniors who would like to take an active role in lobbying town government. We have earned the right to be heard on all issues including taxes.
I attended the public hearing for the Rocky Hill High School referendum on April 12, 2012. This was my first time attending any town meeting and was quite taken aback.
It was rather sad that only one individual attempted to defend the many senior citizens in Rocky Hill. If I would have known that there were going to be lines of students asking the council to pass this referendum, I would have made certain that there were an equal number of us seniors expressing our concerns on how tax increases could have a negative impact on our quality of life. It is a shame that we did not voice our opinion. I do not think the council made an informed decision by only hearing from one side. Without knowing all the facts, I feel strongly that I must vote NO on June 5th on this referendum.
Please feel free to express your concerns with regard to any senior issues in Rocky Hill. If anyone is interested in helping seniors for a better Rocky Hill, please let me know.
Thanks for your support.
Rocky Hill Resident and Concerned Senior Citizen
