I have three points I'd like to make…
One, we need to reorient ourselves and our attitudes about taxes. We need to remember the good that taxes can do for us, has done for us and will continue to do for us.
Second, we have undergone in the past ten years an erosion of that good collective common wealth and we are now in a position to see the results of that bad advice and bad actions in cutting our tax rate from 5.9% to 5.3%
Third, the days of laissez-faire of citizenship is gone. Putting our collective monies into a coffer requires, REQUIRES us to be informed, engaged and outraged when those collective funds are used in a manner that does not promote the common good of our state or our nation.
