Re: "Landlords fighting 'tax palace'" (TNT, 6-25).
The promoter of the campaign against Pierce County's construction of a general services building clearly indicates that he isn't concerned about whether the building gets built but rather that voters should not be committed to anything financially without a vote.
So why do we vote for and handsomely pay our County Council members for full-time work with the benefit of support staff?
At best, it sounds like some voters aren't connected to the county's own information system that sends out information every day that may get covered later by public media outlets. If work is to be performed on the Clarks Creek Bridge between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., the word comes out. When the planning began for a general services building that would consolidate services in one location, it came out.
Never miss a local story.
I suggest interested voters sign up to receive this service if they are so interested in the county's proceedings enough to wish to be informed citizens.
