The Human Face of Lisbon's Failed Budget Policys


The following is a list of our friends, former neighbors, parents and grandparents that have lost their homes by foreclosure. Each one of these addresses represent a real person(s) that has had their hopes and dreams of home ownership taken away by Lisbon's government.


Unless we make drastic cuts to our record high taxes we will probably have another similar list of lost homes and dreams next year. How much of this are you willing to put up with before you demand our Councilors cut our bloated Police budget?

Our new Town Manager, Mrs. Barnes, is working with the people on this list trying to help where she can but she cant fix the underlying problem,  Lisbon's high taxes.

As we start the new year and another budget season lets remember the faces of the above people and not make the same mistakes this year that will ultimately create another list of foreclosures next year.


One thing you can do to stop this from happening again is to call your Councilors and demand they do the Police Personnel Study they promised they would do last year.

Call your Councilors and let them know how you feel about this tragedy.
