Dear Mr. Bloomberg.
As I sit here at home, unemployed, my thoughts revolve around how you would stand out among other politicians vying for the same position. All the changes performed during your tenure were cosmetic, minute, and irrelevant.
Why have you not reached out to us, voters and asked us what kind of drastic action we favor in these troubling times? Why have you not proposed cutting taxes for NYC residents permanently via a prop 13 type measure similar to California’s? Why should we pay perpetual pensions for public workers while receiving none of our own? Is it fair that a cop, fireman, a city or state, employee get pensions supported by public taxes while the rest of us slug it out in the real world do not? Why not ask us in a measure of direct democracy, such a proposition in a public referendum would allow historic changes.
Things as they are now will end in a slow strangulation of those whom pay taxes until eventual insolvency and collapse of the system. Licenses, fees, and regulations the city creates are parasitically enforced before even a dollar of revenue is generated, placing more risk on entrepreneurs to pay first and if things don’t work out the city already received its protection money.
Please limit the flows into the public troth by bleeding the patient(NYC economy) until it dies.
Sincerely, your supporter
