Why is Auburn and other government entities in Washington state maintain that the only answer to everything is to raise taxes to every problem?
Why when I travel to a low state tax states like Florida the roads and bridges are beautiful?
I agree with City Council member Largo Whale’s statement: “I just don’t believe this is not the best way to collect needed revenue.” (“Road to ruin or lower taxes? City Council opposes I-976,” Auburn Reporter, Oct. 11). I do have a problem with her statement that Tim Eyman’s methods are unethical.
What I find unethical is my vehicle being assessed more than its worth. What I find unethical is having to spend over $400 a year to ride my motorcycle a few weekends, three months out of the year. What I find unethical is showing a (TV ad) of a bridge collapse – 2013 truck collision that caused a section of the Skagit River Bridge on I-5 to fall – because of maintenance the state cannot afford.
What I find unethical is a State Patrol women in full uniform endorsing a political ad. What I find unethical is buying a hybrid Highlander that doesn’t plug in charged $70 more when it gets 30 miles per gallon.
Stop drinking the Kool-Aid and vote yes on I-976.
