Fire tax

To the Editor:

Just want to make my comment on the proposed fire tax for GCSD. I believe the district would get more positive reaction if they just ask to raise the fire tax to $100 per improved parcel and $55 for unimproved parcel.

The way it is written GCSD wants to raise the fire tax and allow for an increase of approximately 3% each year for the next 10 years. I personally would vote against the proposal as written but if changed I would be happy to support it. GCSD needs to remember that the majority of property owners are seniors on fixed income.

GOP contestants

To the Editor:

Republican presidential contestants are singing the same old song.

Four conservative white guys pandering to, playing to, an unrepresentative base of anti-abortion, anti-gay, anti-immigration, anti-tax, anti-government, anti-everything zealots.

Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul, are old news in a fast changing world. They are a picture of negativity spewing out vindictive rhetoric on everyone and everything that doesn't fit in their worldview.

Four conservative guys trumpeting Bush era failed economic policies, tossing around pie-in-the-sky promises, on how they'll move the country forward. This pack no longer represents anything. They only represent themselves.
