Nashua’s Property Revaluation Lowers Tax Rate But Not Taxes

by Op-Ed September 15, 2018

Nashua Mayor Donchess is quick to point out that the city had to do its recent property revaluation. It’s state law. And that’s true. He was not ‘unhappy’ to report that as a result, the tax rate will go down. But that’s not good news because the dance is between the tax base and the budget. […]

Nashua Regional Planning Commission Fishing For Commuter Rail

by Steve MacDonald March 15, 2018

Regional Planning Commissions are unaccountable bodies of busy-bodies who operate outside the usual rules for political interference in your day to day life.
