Transient Occupancy Tax

To the Editor:

Regarding: Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT)

The TOT is another tax. Barry Goldwater Jr., a former congressman and member of a distinguished family of legislators, was in our county recently and declared taxes as a "redistribution" of wealth. The money is taken from the private sector and directed into the hands of government, for their infinite direction. Is this what we need or do we need government to cut costs and discreetly use the money they already get from us.

Do not fall for additional taxes in any form and watch for ballot issues for huge state new taxes coming in November.
