It’s going to be a bumpy ride

Dear Editor:
I find it extremely ironic that while we long suffering Union City taxpayers find ourselves saddled with another significant local property tax increase, our reserve and Finance Commissioner Margie Martinetti devotes plenty of time and effort to be a modern day Ethel Merman in her attempt to establish her daughter as an entertainer.
Let’s remember that Mrs. Martinetti never apologized to us Union City taxpayers when earlier this year our local bond rating was lowered from an A rating to a B rating.
In addition she hasn’t made any effort whatsoever to try an improve our retail community on Bergenline and Summit.
To sum up her insistence to being nothing more that window dressing for our community, we can all say that everything is most definitely not coming up roses for our great city of Union City as far as our local economic well being is concerned.
