Spokesman-Review Letters to the Editor
Car tab hike? No way

Here we go again. The big brains running Spokane County have come up with another creative new fee (up to $100) proposed to be added to our car tabs. Just watch, next up, higher taxes (sales and property). Now that’s a sure-fire answer to Spokane County’s financial woes. Not!

Yes, Spokane County is in a pickle. But, commissioners, how about putting some gray matter to work and come up with a smart, long-term plan we can all live with? One that might even cut some costs (there must be some government waste you can uncover?) and encourage new businesses with good jobs to move to Spokane (not Post Falls). But first, read my lips, no new taxes or fees.

And while you’re at it, add my name to the list calling for that bottomless pit, better known as Spokane Raceway Park, to be put on the auction block so it can be back where it belongs, in the hands of private enterprise. Just what were you thinking?

When the best and the brightest should be leading Spokane County, why do we settle for dwindle de and twiddle dumb? Take care voters, or we could be back to having the Three Stooges running this place. Three guesses as to what’s wrong with this picture, but the first two don’t count.

I could be mistaken, but I believe Mr. Ice is saying he doesn’t support the proposed Transportation Benefit District (TBD). Not surprising, considering the state of the economy. Here’s an earlier post I did on the proposed TBD. Read it then let me know how you’ll vote if it goes to a public vote. Keep in mind that if you want better roads, we have to pay for them somehow.
