What will will it take to retain my wife and I to live in Connecticut before we move out?
We are both life long residents of Connecticut. We were both born and raised here. We have faithfully paid our taxes since we started working. We have paid our ever increasing state income tax since it was enacted over the outcry of Connecticut Taxpayers. We have paid every other conceivable Connecticut tax since we were born.
We are threatening to move out of Connecticut. We do not want to however the current economic climate and the corrupted political system has given us no choice than to look at other states. We have seen the packages offered in others states such as Florida and the Carolinas. In some of these other states that have made offers we would experience a much lower state tax burden than we have in Connecticut. In some of these other states that have made offers we would experience a much lower local/property/county tax burden than we have in Connecticut. In some of these other states that have made offers we would experience much lower insurance rates for property and autos than we have in Connecticut.
Again please do not take lightly our threat to move out of Connecticut. My wife and I pay an enormous sum in state and local taxes. My wife and I support economically local businesses through our purchases. I have educated many young people over my thirty four years of being an Adjunct Professor of Business and Economics in many Connecticut Colleges and Universities. All of this would be a massive economic hit to the state and local economy if we were to move out of Connecticut.
Please do think these are talking points either just because it is election time. Our thoughts are real.
We feel that what is good for Sikorsky is good for the Swick's. We feel what is good for Connecticut's First Five is good for the Swick's. We feel what is good for political crony capitalism is good for the Swick's. After all we have been here much longer than many individuals and corporations who feed off the Connecticut Taxpayers. Now it should be our turn.
Thus what is the offer from the Governor and our State Legislature?
The silence is deafening to the Swick's.
