How high can your real estate taxes go?


If you own property in the Wareham Fire District, come to the Wareham Fire District’s Annual Meeting Monday, April 9, 2018, 7 p.m., Wareham High School Auditorium. Find out how high your taxes can go if all of the warrant’s money articles are passed.  Questions are encouraged, opinions are voiced. If you are shy and don’t wish to speak that’s o.k.; it’s a great opportunity to listen, learn and vote your choice.


Not sure if you can fit the meeting into your schedule? Don’t think your vote will make a difference?


Ever hear of, “I wish I knew then what I know now” voter remorse?


Or how about, “Didn’t bother to vote,” next day voter regret? Ever hear of that?


It’s one meeting, one night…and your future real estate tax bill.

VOTE NO ON EVERYTHING! This craziness needs to stop

We need to vote by paper! It's super awkward to have the employees some of who are friends sitting in the audience and knowing how every person votes. Unfair to the voters.

Stand and make a motion for a vote by paper ballot. Everyone else when the motion is made shout out "second the motion."

Unless people have the courage to vote, Andrea, the answer is that there is no limit. We are not living in a country where elections are overseen by people with automatic weapons. People need to vote and shouldn't/(CAN'T) be discouraged by the form of voting. If there is ever a day that I am chastized by friends or family for voting what I believe to be in my best interests, my list of family and friends will grow shorter. At least, for the period of time that takes them to regain their senses.

Paper ballots are more accurate for both sides!


Prior to last night's meeting,  I presented various scenarios in my comments that warranted the privacy of a ballot.  I was speculating.  Although those scenarios did in fact come to fruition last night from my vantage point, it's still my opinion and can be challenged.


Paper ballots are more accurate for both sides!


I failed in my speculation to mention accuracy.  Nobody will argue that accuracy was a concern last night.  I was truly amazed at the disorganization and incompetence displayed during the simple counting of yellow cards!  I'm being professional in my wording.  If I wasn't I'd say it was akin to a circus.  How hard is it to count the correct votes?  They didn't even have the mechanical counters that I have seen at Town Meeting.  I have no faith that the counts were accurate.  A tally in a person's head is not something that I trust.


Paper ballots are more accurate for both sides!
