TACOMA: Unfair to force non-Tacomans to pay for city streets

Re: “Non-residents pay for poor leadership?” (letter, 10-24).

On behalf of the Puyallup letter writer and all other residents outside of the City of Tacoma who may be forced to incur increased costs without the ability to vote either way on those increases, I’m voting no on Proposition 1.

It’s not fair at all that our city leadership’s failures to take care of our roads be passed on to those outside the city, especially when they can’t vote on it. That is taxation without representation, and I’m using my one vote to send a message.

Let’s be fair and wait on that roads task force we have been hearing about and see what solutions come about that don’t involve taxation without representation. Join me in voting no on Prop. 1 and do right by people outside the city who don’t have that same option.
