Peter Cunningham is working to make sure there is no city tax increase in this year’s budget. He was one of the leaders in passing a recent measure to keep the city tax levy completely flat.
Peter Cunningham said, “It is critical to financially squeezed Hoboken families and seniors living on fixed incomes, that we hold the line on taxes.” Cunningham added, “Given how hard some families were hit by last year’s property tax revaluation, doing all we can to keep municipal taxes from rising is especially important.
Cunningham has worked hard on the Council for fiscal responsibility and cost-efficiencies. His efforts have been critical to putting Hoboken on a sound long-term fiscal path, leading to the awarding of a AA+ bond rating from Standard & Poor’s.
