Justin Katz is a political blogger for the Ocean State Current. He also does a show on SundayRead Moremorni ngs along with Bob Plain called the Wingmen. He also happens to live in Tiverton and wrote his own town budget. He's written a blog about it and is trying to get 50 signatures to get it on the ballot. So...We're not supposed to talk about Justin or criticize his blog according to Joe because he feels it's a personal attack.

Joe you as a public figure should realize... you are going to be attacked for your positions...Read Moreyour going to be congratulated for your positions... it just depends on who is talking to you... but you choice that when you became and a member of the Budget committee... it is the same for anyone that takes a public position...

James Arruda, why did we have to pay the realtor at the end of the contract? We heard severalRead Moreoffers were made and turned down. So if the realtor had buyers why were they not valid offers. This is the second time I question what you said. The first was telling people Ch. 10 didn't turn over information involving the Martin case. We all know the State Police have the ability to get a court order. I believe you miss spoke then and now.

Joe Sousa April 18, 2014 at 12:43 PM
Open space is paid two ways. Private donation and the tax paid by developers. Open space requiresRead Moreno public services and cost the town nothing. Zero gain zero lose. I am a big supporter of less houses more trees.
Mike April 18, 2014 at 12:06 PM
A political candidate or media spokesperson (as Katz is for the right-wing Ocean State Current) isRead Morea public figure. Public criticism and challenges go with the territory. It is Katz who attacks private citizens. I was a very public victim of an extensive attack -- on my job, my affiliations and my family, and there have been others. If you choose to be a public figure, you can't play victim if people publicly call you out. And if you are a public figure who attacks private citizens, you are of inferior character, and you are certainly no leader.

Mike well stated.

Tiverton Dad April 18, 2014 at 01:00 PM
Leslie, going back a bit, but I wanted to respond to your comment that the town'sRead More"amenities&qu ot; do not create taxes. Yes, they do. These amenities drive residential purchases and new construction. Like it or not, most towns rely on residential taxes for their financial foundation. If the town overdevelops--residential or commercial--it risks driving down property values and the residential tax base. We need to diversify our tax base, but there needs to be a balance between "quality of life" and development.

What items would you have the government cut spending on. In local terms Joe, where would you likeRead Moret o see the spending cuts and did you press for them in this years budget. Joe will you be supporting the Katzmath budget.

As with anything... it is a cost / benefit type of thing... taxes from rooms and those thatRead Morebusiness es pay will have to cover the cost of additional service they need ( police / Fire / Rescue )... you need people to spend more in town so that the town can continue to grow... everything goes hand in hand... the people must have a reason to stay around and spend money...
