Letter to the editor: Seniors, vote no

To the editor:

Recently Lawrence officials stated that the city and county should become a haven for retirees. But now the city and county officials want to raise taxes again, which will hurt these same seniors they want to attract and especially those on fixed incomes and Social Security.

I would suggest that all seniors vote no on any tax increases, until such time as the officials remove the excessive taxes on food. That would show that officials want seniors here and are concerned about their well-being.
