Lower taxes by firing Josh Brown
October 28, 2010 · 2:46 PM
Another Josh Brown campaign mailer arrived this morning.
He says he’s tired of higher taxes and wasteful spending.
So am I.
I’m assuming he’s aware he is part of the problem and regrets what he has done.
I agree that sending $200,000 a month of taxpayer dollars to a charity in Seattle via Rolling Hills Golf Club is wasteful.
And I agree that spending $1 million in taxpayer dollars for a Young Men’s Christian Association facility is a bit over the top.
I wonder what north and south Kitsap taxpayers think about that?
And that if he and his fellow commissioners could save $17 million when revenues are down because of government-imposed regulations on local businesses, why has it not been done before when business was good?
And the 1 percent increase in property tax revenue each year does qualify as a tax increase.
Well, I think we should put Mr. Brown — and the voters — out of their misery and relieve him of these chores.
Abby Burlingame will make decisions much more advantageous to the taxpayer.
