In their letters above, Jim Burch and Walter Hays continue to attempt to mislead the public in an effort to get us to approve Measure A. They gloss over the fact that the tax is unfair to small businesses and that children who sell lemonade and baby sit will be liable for the tax under penalty of prosecution (yes, we know Drekmeier said this will never happen, but Drekmeier will be out of office in two months).
I bet you that Burch wishes he could gavel the opponents of Measure A out of order, as he did with those citizens whose free speech rights he did not respect when he was mayor.
Vote no on Measure A
