‘Dedicate the tax’
To The Editor:
I don't normally voice an opinion on issues on which there has been long discussions, but I am making an exception.
I will keep it brief.
I am not against the tax. In fact, properly structured it could solve one of the most pressing issues The Valley faces.
But I am against raising a pot of money governed by a board that is too far removed from my vote looking for ways to spend it.
But dedicating a tax (amount TBD) to affordable housing would receive my approval. This would be governed by a knowledgeable board with representatives from all stakeholders.
And it could have a term limit or specific amount on it.
