Letter to the Editor: We are voting against anything that raises taxes.

Monday, October 21, 2019

To the Editor:

We are being overwhelmed by car tabs, rising costs of everything, and especially taxes. My wife and I have lived in Shoreline since 1967, 52 years and can no longer afford to live here any longer. The taxes are eating us out of house and home. 

If we did not have to pay taxes like all of these new apartments we could stay for awhile longer. We are going to have to move somewhere else. We do not need this new pool or a new senior center, the pool can be rebuilt as well as the center. 

We are voting against anything that raises taxes.

I feel for you, Jim. We're the same way -- no more taxes. However, all of those apartment dwellers are paying property taxes via their rent. Nobody escapes the tax man, N O B O D Y.

That's the idea Mr. Malchow. This whole upzone, ST3 taxes, tax breaks for developers was designed to displace the average Shoreliner.
