Re: “Matt Driscoll: Where County Council candidates stand on mental health sales tax” (TNT, 10/11).
I’m writing to urge Pierce County residents to contact their representative and all members of the County Council and urge them to include a mental health tax in the 2017 budget.
If passed, citizens would pay one dime for every $100 they spend (on taxable goods) and the county would have about $9 million annually to spend on desperately needed mental health services.
Brother, can you spare a dime?
County, can we count on your compassion?
