- Radio Free Connecticut
OK - last one today because I have a ton of work to do.
When my annual property taxes in Putnam Valley New York went from $11,000 to just a hair under $30,000 per year thanks to the school budget (yes really!) My wife and I decided to move. Being a hedge fund guy, it would have been more convenient for my career if we moved to Connecticut someplace. But my brother, who was a NJ resident, convinced me that the political situation in NJ was sure to become more conservative, and I'd be better off over the long term if I considered moving down here.
When my wife saw that it's actually warmer down here than in CT, the die was cast, and inevitably, RadioFreeNJ was born.
Now I see that not only was my brother right about the long term prospects, but I'm even more relieved than usual to not be living in CT.
