To the editor:
It pains me deeply to have to tell my many good friends that I shall, for two good reasons, vote against both sales tax proposals which are on the November ballot. The first and to me the most important reason for voting "no" is that a sales tax is a regressive tax which burdens those least able to pay. The second reason I oppose the sales tax increases is that they are, in fact, on the ballot because of the shocking cowardice of the City Commission whose members were afraid to vote for a minimal increase in the property tax.
