Incumbent Town Councilor Chris Orestis has overseen an increase in Falmouth property taxes of 9.3 percent in the last two years: government greed and a hardship on many in these tough economic times, especially the elderly, who happen to be his company’s target market. (A conflict of interest?)
And although he likes to call himself “business friendly,” Orestis has actually hampered businesses in Falmouth, calling for TideSmart Global’s Steve Woods to pay a “big ‘ol fine” that would “hurt,” for sign lettering one inch shorter than it should have been. No wonder Falmouth hasn’t been able to get certified as “Business Friendly,” although our neighboring town Cumberland has.
Is this really who we want to represent us and our town and be a steward of our hard-earned tax dollars for another three years?
I am supporting fiscally responsible candidates Charlie McBrady and Erin Mancini.
