Property taxes are increasing while property values are decreasing all over the state of NY. Good luck trying to get it under control. I tried and failed, so I moved out of the state.

New York and Florida public schools are both ranked in the top 5 in the country. Do the research. New York real estate/school taxes continue to go up and up and up, while property values go down...

Way to go Steven Roberts! If your government won't listen to you, find one that will. It is working wonderfully for us so far! Best of luck to you and your family. There are so many transplants from NY here in Florida. I have yet to meet one who regrets the decision to get out of NY!

To Justapto: Did you read my letter? Did I mention gorging on transfats, cigarettes, alcohol and drugs? If you don't agree with my move, that's fine. But, please get your facts straight. I was not insulting to you, why do you feel the need to be insulting to me?
To Muggy and Biwemple - thank you for your support.

Rita - I agree that too few Americans exercise their right to vote. However, there is another way of looking at this. The abysmal voter turnout for the Republican Primary in NY is likely a reflection of the abysmally low percentage of registered Republicans. You have to be registered with a party in order to vote in the primary. New Yorkers are, overwhelmingly, registered Democrats.

To Bruce: Attacking a man for his politics is one thing, but attacking a man's physical health is way out of bounds.

Cynthia and Clifford:
The inverse is actually true. Taxes are a factor in determining the rankings of schools. As Niskayuna taxes increase, the ranking goes DOWN, making the value of homes go DOWN.

Mr. Nagig: I could not have said it better myself! Thank you for saying what so many of us in the private sector have been thinking!

Oh, Newsworthy. You are so very, very correct. If you read the newsletter published by the school district right before each budget vote, it contains veiled threats of the potential harm to children if the budget is voted down. It is all political rhetoric, as you said, meant to scare all of us or guilt us into doing what is "right" for our children. Really, we are just doing what is right for them. I will vote no on the budget. I just don't know if there are enough people like you and me to have a meaningful impact on the process!
