Re: “Taxing Us

The problem for me, and many others I suspect, is not that we're against paying higher taxes per se, it's that the significant amount we're already paying is being wasted. I live in the city and pay thousands in property taxes each year. Last week the Times-Dispatch published an article citing the (unbelievable!!) legal fees the city's School Board pays to retain its lawyers.…
Richmond's school buildings are crumbling, kids don't have computers, half of them don't graduate from high school etc., but by God, the well-heeled, sharp-suited, Mercedes-driving lawyers are sucking out $1,000 PER DAY (roughly 4+ times the rate surrounding counties are paying) to keep the School Board out of any legal ditches. And that's up 269% from just three years ago! So, am I in favor of paying more in taxes to fix the schools? Hell no, not when I know it's eventually going to provide some legal hot-shot 2 weeks skiing in Vail.
