Letter: Vote for Lienhoop is vote for trash tax

From: Charlie Bryant, retired city garage employee


As a registered Democrat voting Republican in the upcoming primary election, I would like to ask all my friends and all the recipients of the Little Charlie Bryant Scholarship who live locally to vote for Kristen Brown for mayor and to remember that a vote for the opponent is a vote for the trash tax.

When the prior administration added the trash tax, the city did not need the extra money at all. Brown has successfully minimized city expenses yet she has been able to find funds to improve, and continues to improve, city streets, neighborhoods and the city’s infrastructure without adding any new taxes. Why not keep a good thing going and re-elect Brown for mayor on May 5?
