LTE: I thought Republicans liked lower tax rates

To the Editor,

The Hopewell Township Republican candidates keep sending out mailers complaining about the tax rate cut adopted by the Hopewell Township Committee.  

Why? I thought Republicans—especially Trump Republicans—liked lower tax rates.

It’s a strange way to run for office, by criticizing someone for lowering the tax rate.

Personally, I like a lower tax rate. That’s why I am voting for Mayor Courtney Peters-Manning and Committee Member David Chait for Hopewell Township Committee this Tuesday.

Sincerely, 

Ron Lagman,
Hopewell Township
