To the Editor:
The founders and staff of the Newtown League of Senior Voters have organized an important meeting at 6 pm on the 16th of April. All seniors are invited to attend.
We have in the last 10 months attended many of the Newtown's meeting to listen and participate in the discussion seeking to bring another perspective relative to the concerns that seniors have expressed in the past few months. We would like to share this information at the meeting.

A crowd of mostly senior citizens filled seats normally occupied by teenagers in the lecture hall at Newtown High School last week. Turning the tables, they came to do the lecturing to an attentive Board of Finance sitting in front of the class. The subject was property taxes and the lesson was: They’re too high! The face-off seemed inevitable after tax bills went out early last summer, reflecting dramatically higher taxes on dramatically higher assessments for three types of properties, including over-55 condominiums.

The newly formed Newtown League of Senior Voters is scheduled to meet with town officials at 7 pm on October 15th at the high school in order to bring greater awareness and discussion related to the property valuations and sharp increase in real estate taxes imposed on the senior condo owners. These 400 families will ask the town to provide an equitable tax reduction as do other neighboring towns like Redding, Easton, Trumbull etc.
