Thank you Danbury Police Officer

This Friday, May 2, we arrived to town around 6:45 p.m. and heading to our place we came across a Danbury Police Officer with his lights going, but no car pulled over at the intersection of 163 and 269. Once we got closer to the officer, we saw he was “serving and protecting” an injured swan. I told the officer I thought he was a hero for doing what he did. I’m an animal rescue person and seeing him sitting there so patiently, waiting for a wildlife specialist, did my heart good.

Danbury School Levy

Have you heard much about the new 1.5 mil Danbury School Levy? No? Maybe because they are hoping you don’t notice it’s a permanent tax! Yes, you will be paying for it as long as you own property in Danbury/Marblehead. I was astounded to find the school has about a 10 million dollar a year budget and after calling the Auditor’s Office found 57.8% of our property taxes go to this one school. Somehow they have managed to scrape up enough money to build a new maintenance building, big parking lot, bleachers, state of the art track, refreshment stand, electronic sign, etc. If you haven’t seen the building boom in Danbury, just drive down Bay Shore Rd. and look at the multi-million dollar houses that have gone up and are going up every day in Bay Point as an example. This is not a poor school, in fact, it is a very rich school and it’s getting richer by the day with all the new homes being built in the township, government contributions, etc. 

There is absolutely no excuse for this school to burden our property owners with another tax, let alone a permanent one. If they can’t manage with all the money they have, they need to put someone else in charge. We have a lot of seniors on fixed incomes, who are unemployment, and residents just struggling not to lose their homes in our township. Enough is enough. VOTE NO on the Danbury School Levy.
