Vox Pop- Nov. 24
Wouldn’t it help?
Stop the ‘me’ mentality
To the caller wondering why it takes so long to get a dog catcher to respond to a complaint, it’s more evidence of our society’s lack of desire to pay taxes. That’s why it takes longer to get roads repaired, plowed or a dog catcher to respond. Until we stop this ‘me’ mentality of keeping everything for me and not wanting to pay my share to the greater good and the never-ending search for tax loopholes, all of our services and quality of life will suffer in terms of what the government provides for its citizens.
