On taxes and speaking up

To the editor:
Thank you for the excellent editorial regarding the Polk County commissioners’ tax decrease.

Your comments regarding using $66,000 for other positions in the sheriff’s department or department of social services seems like an excellent way to support other Polk County families and their needs. Not just another political ploy to haul out when campaigning for the next BOC election.

Regarding another letter writer’s comments about former commissioner Renee McDermott’s vitriol. Where has this person been and why didn’t he speak up when she was so vociferously attacked in the Bulletin?

It seems that if some people didn’t have double standards, they’d have no standards.
