An open letter to District 6 County Commissioner David Sharpe,
One hundred percent of respondents to a Lookout Valley neighborhood association poll said no to a tax increase. This doesn't include the no vote from people who did not participate in the poll.
We now ask you, Mr. Sharpe, does your loyalty lie with your largest political contributor UnifiEd or does it lie with your constituents?

You want a tax increase? I see no benefit in it.
No matter how much money you are given in taxes, you always want more.
My Social Security is $834 a month. Can you live on that? I barely get by now. Have to watch every penny.
I don't get food stamps or help with my electric bill or anything else. Grandpa bought this place in 1901. Paying city and county taxes now drains me, and you want more.
When will it end? Not in my life time, I am sure. Do with what you have. Stay within your budget. I have to stay within mine.
