My name is Steve Balich. I am with the Homer Lockport Tea Party. I would like to thank you for your support to help stop the Mayor of Lockport’s proposed tax increase last night. The Homer Lockport tea party was successful in stopping the rate increase because of your support, and all the alderman except one. Most Alderman understood the economic hardships many of the home owners are presently experiencing, and voted accordingly. It was pointed out by Alderwoman Denise Maryknowski that since there seemed to be no problem giving $12,000 for a party, there should be no problem giving the people of Lockport a break on their taxes.
Merry Christmas and happy new year.
