“Homeowners are confronting extensive financial and personal hardship, rebuilding their homes and their lives in the wake of Superstorm Sandy,” she said. “Still other residents are coping with the effects of a prolonged economic downturn. In times like these, local governments have an obligation to help ease the burden borne by local taxpayers. Indeed, my 2014 budget proposal reduces town taxes.”
