What we need is a sailboat dealer

-A A +A
By Richard Hannemann

Dear Editor,

Has it occured to anyone that there is no sailboat dealer in Los Alamos? Why is there no sailboat dealer in Los Alamos? There is plenty of disposable income for sailboats. There are lakes nearby to float a sailboat. There are people in Los Alamos who want, or already have, a sailboat. But, there is no sailboat dealer in Los Alamos.    

What is wrong with Los Alamos that there is no sailboat dealer? What is wrong with Los Alamos that people who want a sailboat and have the money for a sailboat can’t go to the local sailboat lot, look over an array of sailboats, and purchase the sailboat that is their heart’s desire? Surely, those who can afford a sailboat and want a sailboat should be able to buy that sailboat right here. If they can’t, they’ll buy it elsewhere.    

They will take the money they earn here, go off the Hill, and buy that sailboat in some other town. Some other town will get the gross receipts tax. We can’t allow that. The money was earned here, the GRT should go to our county for our sidewalks and roads and capital improvement projects to support our life-style.
