Our first selectman says the town wants to help seniors retain their homes. Maybe he's finally realizing how little seniors cost the town. He also wants a 2.67 percent tax increase. Have all you seniors been given a 2.67 percent increase in your Social Security benefits? I don't think so.

Have you seen the town's senior tax-relief program? Wow! Do they really think this is going to help seniors stay in their homes? Many towns and states freeze seniors' taxes at a certain age.

The town's senior tax-relief program offers very little help. The town could and should do better.
