Letter: One-party rule in Oyster Bay

The people of the Town of Oyster Bay have only themselves to blame for the 8.8 percent tax hike ["Overtaxing those who stay on LI," Letters, Dec. 2]. We elected Republican Town Supervisor John Venditto and town councilmembers all from the same party. Because they're all from the same party, any tax hike Venditto wants will go through.

Having one political party monopolize any part of the government is not good for the people. We need someone in office who will look out for the constituents instead of going along with his or her political party.
