Re:”Group wants utility tax off ballot in November” (TNT, 8-1).

The City of Tacoma needs to share the whole story about where money presently comes from and how it is used so that citizens can determine intelligently whether this proposed tax makes sense and can be justified as the best and most economically way to get our streets back to the level we need.

Are present funds really inadequate? Can we trust the city to spend what is available in a responsible way?
