Having my coffee this morning and reading the local Sun-Sentinel I was floored by the article on the front page of Section B. You can read it here http://www.sun-sentinel.com/. 71% of the voters in this county and 64% state wide voted for Amendment 1, yet here we go with more tax requests. I fired off the following letter to the editor and I'd like your ideas:
I just finished reading Juan Ortega's Tuesday front page article Some cities considering tax increases. I can not believe the audacity of these politicians. Three quarters of the voter told them by approving Amendment 1 that taxes in Florida are TOO HIGH, yet here they are back at the well looking for more. We worked very hard to ensure the passage of Amendment 1, and we're making a claim right now that we'll work very hard to oppose any local tax increases! The voters have spoken - LISTEN! We understand that every budget has "Have tos" and "Want Tos" included. We're telling you there is no money for "Want tos" and you should get the spending on "Have tos" in line. The South Florida version of the Boston Tea Party has commenced, but we won't throw any tea overboard - we'll just work to throw unenlightened politicians out of office!
