Reader Input: Enough with runaway taxes

-A +A

We did not realize when we voted for our supervisor (Jim Holmes) that he was in favor of raising our taxes: sometimes double, triple and even more if you own a number of parcels.
Please vote yes on Measure K. Stop these people, including Mr. Holmes, from these runaway taxes.
There are some folks who must sell their homes and property because they can no longer afford to live in the Newcastle Fire Protection District. Measure “B” will be a forever tax and continue to raise up to 3 percent per year.
A vote “Yes on K” will give Newcastle a modest fire station. We can do this! After three years of the large tax bill it would return to your previous bill, Measure “F” plus $30 for benefits.
Think modest: not what we want but what we need.
