In response to "Mitigation shunts tax revenue to county" (Dec. 29, Letters): The last sentence states, "All urban growth should be directed to cities, even if it means tax revenue sharing."
In my humble opinion, it sounds like the statement of a true socialist. Share the wealth regardless of who deserves or earned it. Tax until it hurts and then hurt them again.
As citizens of the county and city who pay both taxes, are we to say it is OK to co-mingle those funds? I must have missed civics class the day that was discussed.
