I went to the county building today to drop off my ballot, voting against the latest tax levy. It seems like every year we are asked to support yet another levy, for worthy causes such as school building upgrades, UNM-LA and the like.
My husband and I work very hard for our money and are not upper-echelon labbies that bring home the big bucks … these tax hikes have a real impact on our budget. In the past five years, my taxes have increased $616. The latest levy would increase that another $168.
We do not have unlimited funds, and even if we did, I do not trust the county to use my tax dollars wisely. Take a gander at the “Taj Majal” projects we’ve had thrust upon us in recent years: The White Rock Visitor’s Center, the Justice Center, the new Municipal Building, the Golf Course Clubhouse, Los Alamos High School and Los Alamos Middle School are all good examples. It seems that every project must be grander than the one before, and the sky is apparently the limit.
