Open Forum: State spending isn’t free
In the Dispatch “Open Forum” of April 13. I feel I must respond to Rep. John Ward’s ranting on budgets. Somehow he apparently thinks state spending is free and it would be a travesty to increase property taxes. The readers should be aware that we pay taxes for state spending as well for property taxes. The major difference is local control always controls costs better than the state government.
