Yes on levy: bite the bullet and support it

Letter to the Editor

I hate property tax. Not everyone pays it, and owners must pay even if they have no income. It is the most unfair tax we have. For years I opposed school levies. I felt cuts could be made. Now, however, with loss of federal funds (we burn our forests instead of logging them, and no SRS money) property tax is the only method we are given to support our schools. 

Please bite the bullet with me and support your local school levy. President Trump and Idaho’s congressional people are working on sensible environmental policy and on getting our industries back. Until these things take effect, we must bear more of the burden locally.
