LETTER: Say no to wasteful spending
As if it is not enough that the taxpayers of the nation must bail out a housing market whose policies have crippled our economy, now the taxpayers in Ascension are being asked on the Nov. 4 ballot to foot the bill for a failing private project, the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center.
Our elected officials are not telling us everything for good reason. If they did, we’d see through the ruse. We’ve lost millions on Lamar-Dixon. They waste our money and come back asking for more. It’s time to put a stop to the foolishness.
Our local economy is sustained by the jobs supplied by our local business and industry. I know. I worked for 30 years in industry. Adding another property tax will not help our crippled economy. It will jeopardize jobs.
I’m not in favor of buying Lamar-Dixon and bailing out this albatross. I’m voting no.
