Give Us A Break

The following letter was sent to Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

To His Highness, Mayor For Life, Emperor Bloomberg, I guess that the home-owning middle class in this city should be eternally grateful to you since water and sewer rates are scheduled to rise only 7 percent this July 1 instead of the usual 14 percent 16 percent. Tell me, Mr. Mayor, just when does it end ?

Is it only when you have driven the middle class entirely out of NYC?

And just why was it necessary for you to impose double digit water and sewer rate increases on us, almost from the moment you took office, when the rate of inflation was hovering near 1 – 3 percent? GIVE US A BREAK!

ANDREW ROHMAN
