Could be....... but they receive all the city/town "services" you and I receive up here for their tax dollar ? You have to wonder if you truly think they are paying too much how does that speak to the intelligence of someone like you whos paying tripple what they are ($4500) for the same services but thinks they are getting screwed at $1500.....not to mention those in Cherry Hill, etc who are paying 10 times as much......???

I am paying 3000 more than your kid and live next to a major city with great public transportation and make more than double what I made in Florida.

Camden County's cost of living is still 1.77% lower than the national average.

Well......using your numbers your paying tripple the taxes but only making double the salary......don't forget to add in your winter heating bills, state income taxes, higher insurance, etc and by all accounts that leaves you well behind financially.....and that sounds like a good deal to you ? Your too funny !!!

It is actually a great deal. Paying 3000 more in taxes and doubling my salary is a great deal with excellent benefits.

And actually my auto insurance dropped and my homeowners insurance REALLY dropped.

The point was your paying $4500 for the same services that are available in Florida for $1500.......thats not a good deal no matter how you wish to color the picture.
