Re: Taxes not an issue, Murphy’s Law, Oct. 4
Taxes are an issue for the South Delta community, which is comprised of many who live on fixed incomes and rarely see their income increase each year, nor do they have an opportunity to vote themselves a pay raise or pension increase.
Not reflected in our constantly increasing house taxes is the $1,000-plus we must pay for utilities each spring.
Can we expect a decrease in our house taxes when the casino is operation? Somehow I doubt it as some who approved the casino are campaigning on ways they will spend the money and it is not in reducing taxes.
I wish Community Comment writer Greg Hoover was on this October’s election ballot. I concur with many of the issues he raises. Unfortunately, there is little time left in which one can obtain answers before going to vote.
