Keep our water!
Vote NO June 15
Do you trust THEM or US
They are New Jersey American Water, a big corporation with a history of buying up water utilities and raising water rates. They are spending big $$$ to talk you into a bad deal through a fake grassroots organization called "Trenton Yes".
We are your friends and neighbors. We are community leaders and activists. We stand by 2,000 signatures that were collected to stop the sale of TWW's suburban infrastructure.
We are committed to ensuring that Trenton Water Works generates positive revenues for years to come and continues to supply affordable water to Trenton residents. On June 15th, we urge you to vote NO! to stop the sale.
STOP THE SALE COMMITTEE
UNITED AGAINST THE WATER SALE
VOTE NO TO STOP HIGHER TAXES AND WATER RATES
Suburban sales of Trenton's water keep our rates low, and revenue surpluses help pay for city services. American Water wants to buy the Trenton Water Works suburbazn infrastructure. If we fall for it, costs will go up. The proposed sale already caused a 40 percent rate hike costing $5 million per year, and we will loose $3 million in annual surpluses forever.
VOTE NO TO STOP PRIVATIZATION AND JOB CUTS
Trenton Water Works has already reduced staff in anticipation of the sale. If we don't stop the sale, more jobs will be eliminated in billing, meter reading and installation & maintenance & repair. Trenton Water Works provides good paying jobs to our residents. Vote no to stop privatization and job cuts.
VOTE NO TO STOP A BAD DEAL THAT DOESN"T ADD UP!
American Water says we will get $80 million from the sale. What they don't tell you is that most of the $80 million must be used to retire TWW deby, with little left over for us. They claim we will get $320 million from bulk water sales over 20 years. The truth is there is no guarantee. If we keep the Trenton Water Works, we are guaranteed over $800 million, more than twice as much.
KEEPING TRENTON WATER IS MONEY IN THE BANK!
Trenton benefits from low water rates and revenue surpluses thanks to TWW's suburban operations. TWW will bring in even more revenues as outside demand increases. Selling the suburban territory would permanantly cut Trenton from future outside customers.
VOTE NO TO KEEP OUR REVENUES UP AND OUR OPTIONS OPEN!
