I must differ with your editorial from Sunday, July 27. It is great to support the bus system; however, I do not believe that we need to pay more taxes for it.
The county is willing to spend at least $4 million extra on a new Municipal Building or Judicial Complex, at least $24 million on an unneeded bypass to the Jemez (I have had no problems with any of the three existing routes), at least $30 million more than necessary on new office space and storage on the cliff at the Airport Basin, and $2 million a year on nothing specific for White Rock economic development. $.5 million is a drop in the bucket for a new skateboard park inappropriately placed in front of the library.
The money is there – it just depends on how our government chooses to spend it. I will vote “no” on any tax increase, including GRT, until we are allowed to vote on capital projects in order that county spending represents responsibility to its citizens.
