What an interesting piece of journalism printed in the Valley Voice Sept. 24 regarding the special vote to raise tax rates to 2.9 percent since revenues have fallen due to unemployment, decreased value in property and frivolous spending by the Spokane Valley City Council.
I found it even more interesting when I saw one of council members Richard Munson, Diana Wilhite and Ian Robertson’s billboards touting re-election for them. I believe the billboard said something to the effect of “balanced budget and lower rates”; now how can that be when all of them just voted for a larger-than-the-cost-of- living increase? Seems that these council members speak out of both sides of their mouths and just want to pull the wool over we citizens’ eyes.
Please remember these inconsistencies when you go to the polls and mark your ballot for Dean Grafos, Brenda Grassel, Tom Towey and Bob McCaslin.
