Cynde, I lived in Passaic many years ago and this takes the cake. I told the mayor one time what he needs to do to lower the taxes around here, but he doesn't want to hear about it. I also moved here from a town that had the lowest taxes in the country, but this town doesn't want to do that because they are screwing everybody and making to much money.
