TACOMA: Non-residents pay for city’s poor leadership?

I live in Puyallup and get my power from Tacoma Public Utilities. I can’t vote on Tacoma’s Proposition 1, but highly suspect my power rate will, in time, increase if it is approved.

I think it is negligent that the leadership in Tacoma didn’t properly take care of their roads and now have to demand a handout from folks who don’t live there. I’m quite irritated by possibly having to participate in the bailout for the City of Tacoma’s Streets & Road Fix-It Program.

This reminds me of “taxation without representation.” Tacoma voters, please don’t approve this flawed plan.
