I do not believe the Mayor or City Counsel realize that they are part of our problem. We are taxed higher than other places and Portsmouth LOVES to find new ways to get as much and do as little as possible for you. The red tape we went through to do a new porch was ridiculous The crime rate is a problem. Too many homes are being RENTED to death. Repairs are not done or barely done. It brings down the property values of the neighborhood. If you see alot of rentals in a neighborhood, that can be a real issue. There are Way too many foreclosures and you see papers on homes saying the property is condemned. The high taxes makes our Mayor and City Counsel look like they are robbing the people. Who wants to live in a town like that. They have millions coming in from the tunnel, but it's never enough. I listened to the news about how many EZ passes had been sold @ $35. Portsmouth is Not poor.
