WINDSOR - posted Jul, 11 2013

I am worried about Windsor. After reading the rhetoric on the recent budget defeat, I was surprised to find how many people do not realize that the Council, Board of Education and all the boards and commissions are filled by volunteers – that means they do not get paid for these positions they take on. They are also Windsor citizens and pay taxes for their property. The town of Windsor does supply the rooms for these meetings, pay the lights. etc., but no salary for the volunteers. Remember when you vote the budget – the persons sitting at the table are just like you, except they give back to the community they live in – without compensation. The council had some hard decisions to make and they put forth a budget with a 0% tax increase. Please vote "yes" for the budget on July 16 to maintain Windsor as the great town that it is. Thank you, a Windsor resident that gives back. Florence Barlow Windsor
